Ambi Pictures To Remake Christopher Nolan’s Memento

16 November 2015 1:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi’s Ambi Pictures will finance and produce a remake of Christopher Nolan’s iconic, twist-laden film Memento.

Writer/director Christopher Nolan adapted Memento from a short story by his brother Jonathan Nolan titled “Memento Mori”, and the unusual, neo-noir psychological thriller took audiences by storm upon release in 2000 and has since achieved cult hit status with a fervent following.

Starring Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Joe Pantoliano, Memento was lauded for its nonlinear narrative structure and motifs of memory, perception, grief, and self-deception. The film was a box office success and received numerous accolades, including Academy Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Editing.

As part of its “Summer Under the Stars” series, TCM is showing this evening the movies that earned Ann-Margret her Academy Award nods: Mike Nichols' Carnal Knowledge (1971) and Ken Russell's Tommy (1975). Written by Jules Feiffer, and starring Jack Nicholson and Art Garfunkel, the downbeat – some have found it misogynistic; others have praised it for presenting American men as chauvinistic pigs – Carnal Knowledge is one of the precursors of “adult Hollywood moviemaking,” a rare species that, propelled by the success of disparate arthouse fare such as Vilgot Sjöman's I Am Curious (Yellow) and Costa-Gavras' Z, briefly flourished from »

Matt Dillon Will Chase A Trio Of Pensioners In Going In Style Remake

10 August 2015 3:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

New Line Cinema’s habit of remaking its own titles every ten or so years, presumably to “keep them fresh,” is reaching farther back in time for Going In Style. Based on the 1979 movie by Martin Brest (Scent Of A Woman), the 2015 version is ploughing ahead with Zach Braff taking over directorial duties from the film’s writer Ted Melfi and a leading man finally locked down.

According to the latest report from Deadline, Matt Dillon is on board to play an FBI agent tasked with tracking a bunch of cantankerous pensioners whose later-in-life hobbies involve bank robbery. The original seventies outing featured George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasburg as three elderly New Yorkers who choose to stave off the boredom of old age by robbing a bank. Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin, a superb line-up, play that same trio in Braff’s version. Instead of robbing »
