I’ll admit that I worked for a really long few seconds coming up with a headline, and there’s just no good pun for this one. “Miramax Telling Everyone About ‘Tell No One’ Remake?” “We’re Telling You About ‘Tell No One’ Being Remade?” “Don’t Tell Mom The ‘Tell No One’ Remake Isn’t Dead?” See? It’s just impossible. I challenge anyone to come up with a decent one. And if you do, I will completely ignore it and go on with my life as if you hadn’t. Quite the prize.
Speaking of prizes, back when Rob Hunter raved about Tell No One in his Foreign Objects column, it was also a strong enough showing to make a list of French Films for People that Hate French Films. So we’re no strangers to the French thriller where a doctor’s wife is killed only to turn up several years later.
Now, according to Variety, Miramax and Focus have secured the remake rights to it and play to develop the project together. Isn’t that sweet? Right now, there’s really no information about it – no director, no actors, etc. – but there is a loose starting date set for Spring of next year (2010 if you need the help).
Interestingly, Euracorp – who produced the French version – will also be producing the English-language remake. They are also the company that plans on creating a remake of parkour-fest District B13 which is (terribly) titled Brick Mansion.
What do you think?
