Seoul-based production and sales company Mirovision has optioned the Korean-language remake rights to French thriller The Big Picture from EuropaCorp.

Directed by Eric Lartigau in 2010, the EuropaCorp movie based on the book starred Romain Duris, Marina Fois and Catherine Deneuve. The story follows a successful Parisian lawyer who murders his wife’s lover in a jealous rage, then assumes his identity.
The Korean remake is currently being scripted and is expected to start shooting in the fourth quarter of 2018. Mirovision previously produced Im Sang-soo’s The Housemaid (2010), which played in competition at Cannes. »

Canadian-born actress Alexis Smith (born 1921) would have turned 96 years old today, June 8. Turner Classic Movies is celebrating her birthday by presenting nine of her movies, mostly during her time as a Warner Bros. contract player.

Night and Day is being shown as part of TCM's Gay Pride Month celebration. Alexis Smith died on June 9, 1993, the day after she turned 72.

Smith's last film appearance was in a minor supporting role in Martin Scorsese's overly genteel period drama The Age of Innocence (1993), starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Winona Ryder. »

TCM will be presenting seven Ulmer movies from the mid-1930s to the mid-1960s, including his two best-known efforts: The Black Cat (1934) and Detour (1945). The Black Cat was released shortly before the officialization of the Christian-inspired Production Code, which would castrate American filmmaking – with a few clever exceptions – for the next quarter of a century. Hence, audiences in spring 1934 were able to witness satanism in action, in addition to other bizarre happenings in an art deco mansion located in an isolated area of Hungary. Sporting a David Bowie hairdo, Boris Karloff is at his sinister best in The Black Cat (“Do you hear that, Vitus? The phone is dead. Even the phone is dead”), ailurophobic (a. »
