Arterton and Roth star in The Keys to the Street
Max Irons and Sebastian Koch are also on board the feature, which is a big screen adaptation of the psychological thriller by Ruth Rendell.
Currently slated for a summer shoot in London, the story centres on a woman who, having escaped from her violent boyfriend, becomes embroiled in an affair with a man who is not what he seems.
The producer is Steve Norris, who is working alongside LA-based Gail Mutrux of Pretty Pictures; Czechoslovakian director Julius Sevcik will direct.
Nolan has written the screenplay along with Michael Stokes; the Memento director has been nurturing the project - originally under the auspices of studio giant Fox - for some time but reportedly had to attend to the small matter of directing Batman Begins in 2005 instead.
