Or so I would presume.

It only makes sense that the master of the sleazy erotic thriller, Joe Eszterhas, will team with Hype Williams, the auteur behind the “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” music video, for Eszterhas’ next project, Lust.  Wait. No. NO! THAT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL!

Eszterhas has penned such delightful fare as Showgirls, Sliver, and Basic Instinct, and apparently now wants to know what his scripts would look like shot through a fisheye lens while city lights shine off the hood of a Bentley. Hmmm. That makes two of us.

Stone Village Productions Scott Steindorff describes the project as “Fatal Attraction in reverse” which gives absolutely no clarity to anything, so let me give it a shot. Lust is a sexy thriller set in Miami in which a female publishing magnate is married to a 30 year-old but is cheating on him with a younger man. As the younger man videotapes their passionate romps, the women begins to become unglued. “Fatal Attraction in reverse,” Scott? Puh-lease.

The script recently added some NYC scenes and a big music piece, presumably in anticipation of Williams’ arrival to the project. It doesn’t sound like the movie will get much better with Williams behind the camera, but it sure does sound more fun.

The heyday of the erotic thriller has passed, but Joe Eszterhas forges ahead, penning screenplays that use “sexy” as a plot point. In the vein of Sliver, Showgirls, and Basic Instinct comes Lust, a film with Eszterhas’ fingerprints all over it. Set in sexy Miami, the film tells the story of a sexy 30 year-old woman who is marred to a sexy man, but gets seduced by a sexy younger playboy. If you think that’s it, then you don’t know Joe Eszterhas, my friend.

The sexy younger playboy has a sexy Russian assistant that is in love with him, who videotapes the sexy playboy and the sexy wife in order to show it to her sexy husband (the second character I mentioned, in case I’ve lost you).

Smell that? That’s Lust.

All this eroticism doesn’t come cheap. Stone Village Production is looking for $30 million to get the project going for a late-summer start. Which, not coincidentally, is one of the eight sexiest times to begin production on a film. (THR)
