Casey Affleck is set to star in Every Breath You Take. 

He joins Sam Claflin, Michelle Monaghan, and Veronica Ferres in the independent thriller. 

Every Breath You Take hails from Sunshine Cleaning helmer Christine Jeffs. Per Variety, the feature follows a psychiatrist (Affleck) whose career is thrown into jeopardy when his patient takes her own life. When he invites his patient’s surviving brother (Claflin) into his home to meet his wife (Monaghan) and daughter, his family life is suddenly torn apart. 

“I’m extremely pleased that the gifted Christine Jeffs and our world-class cast have come together to bring this amazing thriller to life, as it touches on themes of family, betrayal and redemption that are universal and resonate for all of us,” film’s producer Richard B. Lewis said.

Principal photography is scheduled to being this month in Vancouver.
