Ben Affleck recently starred in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, and the two are joining forces once again for a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train.

Strangers on a Train follows a psychopath who commits a murder for a tennis player before trying to get the tennis player to commit a murder for him. The original, based on Patricia Highsmith’s book of the same name, came out in 1951.

The remake—working title Strangers—will be updated to take place on planes instead of trains and will include many other major changes to the original. There’s no set release date yet.
