James Marsden and Patrick Wilson are both currently in talks to star in a dark indie thriller entitled Loft .

Based on Erik Van Looy’s disturbing 2008 Belgian film, the plot follows five men who hold keys to a penthouse apartment where they go to exorcise their lustful demons.

But when a dead woman turns up in the apartment, chained to a bed, all hell breaks loose.

Taking his cue from Funny Games helmer Michael Haneke, Van Looy will direct the English-language remake of his earlier film, with a script from A Nightmare On Elm Street ’s Wesley Strick.

Shooting should kick off by the end of 2011.
