Did Juan José Campanella‘s Secret in Their Eyes really need to get remade in English? Eh, probably not. But it happened anyway, so all we can really do now is hope for the best. At least there’s reason to be ever-so-slightly optimistic: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts, and Nicole Kidman head up the new cast, and Billy Ray (Shattered Glass) directs.

You could argue that Juan José Campanella‘s 2009 Argentinian thriller Secret in Their Eyes didn’t really need an English-language remake, and you’d probably be right. But as far as unnecessary remakes go, this one actually looks pretty promising.
Directed by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass), the new Secret in Their Eyes stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman, and Julia Roberts as three FBI colleagues whose lives were torn apart by a brutal murder. Many years later, Ray (Ejiofor) gets a lead that could finally resolve the case, only to uncover something even more destructive. See the Secret in Their Eyes trailer and images after the jump.
