The classic 1970s horror movie ‘Don’t Look Now’ is to get a remake from StudioCanal and is being produced by Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman.
The original film was directed by Nicolas Roeg and released in 1973. Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie starred in this atmospheric supernatural thriller as a couple that was deeply affected by the death of their daughter. Later one of two Catholic conventuals, whom they meet during the trip to Venice, claims that she has telepathic skills and can connect with their daughter. The nun brings a threatening message from the afterworld and warns that they are in danger. Then the grieving couple become haunted by a little girl in a red mackintosh.
‘Don’t Look Now’ was based on Daphne du Maurier’s short story, who is also the author of ‘The Birds’ and ‘Rebecca’ that later were adapted by Alfred Hitchcock.
In spite of its great shoot and surprisingly modern effects together with well-written script and excellently performed roles, what actually earned the film’s place in cinematic history, it is also famous for unbelievably realistic sex scene. The scene was so intimate that the debate over whether Sutherland and Christie actually had intercourse continues till nowadays.
The writer hasn’t been found yet, but the producers and company are going to use same game plan as in their remake of ‘Escape from New York’, it means to find a studio home for the project and then to attach a writer. The interest in ‘Don’t Look Now’ is being already expressed by numerous studios.
