Im Global, which is fully financing the project, is selling the rights to the project at the Toronto Film Festival.
The project had moved forward at Cannes when Ray, the writer of “Captain Phillips,” signed on to direct with Ejiofor and Paltrow attached to the adaptation of the Argentinean pic that won the 2009 Academy Award for foreign-language film.
The original, directed by Juan Jose Campanella and starring Ricardo Darin, was based on the Eduardo Sacheri novel about a romance between a retired judiciary employee and a judge who work to solve a 1974 rape and murder two decades after it took place.
Mark Johnson will produce along with John Ufland. The remake, described as a sophisticated crime thriller, is scheduled to start production this fall.
