Billy Ray has been set to direct The Secret In Their Eyes, the English language remake of last year’s foreign film Oscar winner El Secreto De Sus Ojos. Warner Bros acquired rights to the Argentina pic directed by Juan Jose Campanella. Ray adapted the crime thriller, with Mark Johnson producing. Campanella is executive producer. Ray just rewrote The Hunger Games for Lionsgate, which Gary Ross is negotiating to direct. In the original, a retired prosecutors writes a novel he hopes will allow him to deal with an unrequited love for a superior but mostly to gain closure on a particularly brutal unsolved crime that has haunted him through his career.
