The Boys Don't Cry director's next project will be based on the French thriller Harry, un ami qui vous veut du bien, reports Variety.
Dominik Moll's original film stars Laurent Lucas and Mathilde Seigner as a couple who reconnect with an old school acquaintance, Harry (Sergei Lopez).
At first they are happy with the accidental reunion, but as time progresses they begin to question Harry's suspicious motives.
The 2000 film won four Cesar Awards in 2001 and was nominated for the Palme D'Or at Cannes 2000.
The original title's direct translation is Harry, He's Here to Help.
Peirce is currently in production on her Chloe Moretz-starring adaptation/remake of Carrie.
