Sam Raimi Circles ‘A Prophet,’ Greta Gerwig and Marjane Satrapi Set Casts for Directorial Efforts, and More

25 January 2016 9:37 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It was inevitable that Hollywood would remake Jacques Audiard’s stylish gangster classic A Prophet, but at least there’s considerable talent gathering behind the scenes. It’s been reported that famed crime novelist and The Drop scribe Dennis Lehane will pen the script, while Sam Raimi has eyed the director’s chair. Raimi’s late filmography has been spotty, but his last foray into crime, A Simple Plan, fit like a glove. Audiard’s original film follows a man in prison who’s taken under the tutelage of a crime boss. [Deadline]

After co-writing credits on Noah Baumbach efforts Frances Ha and Mistress America, Greta Gerwig is finally stepping behind the camera herself. Gerwig will direct fellow “it girl” and Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan in Lady Bird. The film will follow a high school senior spending her last year at home in Sacramento. [Deadline]

Sam Raimi In Contention To Remake Acclaimed French Thriller A Prophet

25 January 2016 8:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sam Raimi, founding father of The Evil Dead franchise and the director behind such work as Drag Me to Hell, has opened talks to take the reins of A Prophet, the long-gestating remake of Jacques Audiard’s acclaimed French thriller.

Word comes by way of Deadline, reporting that the nascent project has set up shop at Sony with producer Neal H. Moritz (Furious 7, Jack the Giant Slayer) also attached. Indeed, it’s the first sign of activity from the studio’s remake in some time, considering that Moritz first tabled the concept of a remake back in 2013. Dennis Lehane, meanwhile, remains on board to pen the script.

First released in 2009, A Prophet earned critical acclaim when it made its bow, nabbing a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee the following year. Orbiting around an Algerian youth named Malik El Djebena, the hard-hitting drama charts his meteoric rise to the »
