Vaughn Stein replaces Christine Jeffs ('Sunshine Cleaning'), who left the project only a few weeks ago.

Vaughn Stein, who helmed the Margot Robbie thriller Terminal, has come aboard to direct Every Breath You Take, an indie thriller starring Casey Affleck.

It is a last-minute replacement as Stein fills in for Christine Jeffs (Sunshine Cleaning), who dropped out for undisclosed reasons two weeks ago. Cameras are rolling this week on the project, which also stars Michelle Monaghan and Sam Claflin.

Affleck plays a psychiatrist whose career is thrown into jeopardy when a patient takes her own life. When he invites the patient’s surviving brother, played by Claflin, into his home to meet his wife (Monaghan) and daughter, his family life is suddenly torn apart.

Southpaw Entertainment and Fourward Entertainment are producing the pic. Richard B. Lewis is producing as well as Ferres and Frank Buchs. Tannaz Anisi and Gregory R. Schenz are executive producing alongside Gabrielle Jerou-Tabak and Jon Levin

Stein is in postproduction on his second feature, the mystery thriller Inheritance starring Lily Collins, Simon Pegg and Connie Nielsen. He is repped by UTA, Grandview and Bloom Hergott.
