Oscar Winners to Team Up in Brit Comedy Remake?

15 November 2002 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar winners Die Another Day beauty Halle Berry and Training Day star Denzel Washington are in the frame to take the lead roles in a remake of hit eighties British comedy Educating Rita. The original 1983 film starring Billy Elliot actress Julie Walters and Alfie legend Michael Caine is set to be remade in the US with an all African-American cast. Original director Lewis Gilbert is set to helm the new version. He says, "My view was that you couldn't make a new film as good as the original unless you did something very different to it. That's why I find the idea of making it with a black cast so appealing. Making it a black film will take it sufficiently away from the original to make it fresh, but not too far away. There are so many good black actors in America. You only have to think of the two black actors who took the best actor awards at this year's Oscars (namely Berry and Washington)." »
