"Trust" is the new film David Schwimmer is directing since his directorial debut with last year's Simon Pegg comedy, "Run Fatboy Run."

Moving away from comedy in his new project, Schwimmer's "Trust" stars Clive Owen and Catherine Keener as parents of a 14-year-old girl was is raped by an online predator.

Though the move from comedy to the heavy topic of child sexual abuse may seem a bit drastic, Schwimmer, who serves on the board of directors of Rape Foundation of Santa Monica, has expressed that it has been a topic he has been working on bringing to the big screen for some time.

Having met with victims of child sexual abuse through his work with the foundation, he "was really moved by some of the stories... and in particular by their families."

The film currently is in the process of being shot, mainly in the various cities and towns of Michigan.

"Trust" is being financed by Millennium Films and has an international distribution deal worked out, but is still looking for a domestic distributor. The producers of the film aim to wrap up the filming on December 16 and release the film by Christmas 2010.

In a recent news conference, Schwimmer said his goal for the film is "to entertain and also educate... Perhaps it could have an effect the way movies like 'The Accused' did for its time."
