Plans for a high-spirited, race track heist film starring super-couple Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas have collapsed, Stephen Frears, the director, said yesterday.

Monkey face - a thriller set in Miami - had been scheduled to begin shooting in later this year.

"Whatever the deal was to get Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, they could not get it to work," Frears said. Representatives of Zeta-Jones and Douglas, who married in 2000, were not immediately available for comment.

Frears, whose film, Dirty Pretty Things, has its US opening on Friday, said he had been looking forward to Monkey face, and the chance to work again with Zeta-Jones, who acted in his 2000 film High Fidelity. "I had thought this is going to be tremendous fun, this is going to be like a holiday," he said, adding he believed they were equally enthused after talking about the project with them in January.

He added: "I thought it was going to be a nice little treat, something to look forward to...So this is sad." - Reuters
