‘Warrior’ Director to Remake ‘Tell No One’

tell-no-one-2

Briefly: A remake of the French thriller Tell No One, which involves murder and layers of deception, has been in the works for years, with a variety of directors including Ben Affleck and Andrew Dominik attached to the movie. Now Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) is in talks to make the movie as a follow-up to Jane Got a Gun. Chris Terrio scripted the remake,

Here’s a synopsis of the original film: Eight years ago, pediatrician Alexandre Beck (François Cluzet) was the prime suspect in his wife’s murder. He’s put all that behind him, but now that two dead bodies have been found near his home, he’s suspected of wrongdoing once again. The case takes an unexpected turn when he receives an anonymous e-mail showing his wife alive — and eight years older — instructing him to “tell no one.” [Variety]

The 2006 French film Tell No One was a critical and audience favorite. Based on Harlan Coben‘s novel of the same name, the picture follows the story of a doctor who becomes embroiled in a multi-layered murder mystery scenario. The original film is a great piece of work that comes highly recommended. Which means, of course, that another version is in the offing.

Word of a remake has floated around for some time. Two years ago remake rights went to Focus and Miramax, and then shifted entirely to Focus. At that point Andrew Dominik was writing a new version that was said to rework some details of the story, but in a way that was never revealed. Now it looks as if Ben Affleck might direct a film that is somewhere between a new adaptation of the novel and a remake of the film spawned from it, based on a totally different new script.

Andrew Dominik Writing Remake of ‘Tell No One’

tell-no-one-2

Tell No One has had an interesting history. From a novel by Harlan Coben, Guillaume Canet directed the 2006 film that became a European hit and an art-house success in the US.

In 2009 Focus Features and Miramax picked up remake rights, but with the changes that hit Miramax in the last year, those rights now reportedly reside entirely with Focus. And the studio has now hired Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) to write a new draft. Read More »

This Week in DVD is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.

Please don’t take the commentary on the movies and TV shows too seriously, as they’re meant not to be reviews but rather previews that include the general thoughts and ramblings of a twice-committed DVD addict. The categories represent solely the author’s intentions towards the DVDs at hand, and are in no way meant to be a reflection on what he thinks other people should rent or buy. So if he ends up putting a movie you like in the “Skip it” section without having seen it, please keep in mind that the time you could spend leaving a spiteful but ultimately futile comment could instead be used for more pleasant things in life. Like buying DVDs.

Buy It

SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE
Generally this is where I’d try to convince you that the DVD at hand is worth buying. But given that in this particular case the movie is Slumdog Millionaire, I fail to see the point. Between the constant praise we’ve lavished on the film over the past 5 months on the /Filmcast, the almost unparalleled critical and audience acclaim its received, and the numerous awards its won at the Golden Globes and the Oscars (including Best Picture and Best Director), there’s no excuse for not having seen it (or at the very least, having plans to rent it ASAP). Considering that Danny Boyle’s previous film (the terrific Sunshine) went almost completely overlooked in 2007, it fills me with great joy to see him hitting people’s radars in such a substantial way this soon afterwards.
Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: Commentary by director Danny Boyle and actor Dev Patel, commentary by writer Simon Beaufoy and producer Christian Colson, a ‘Slumdog Dreams: Danny Boyle & The Making of Slumdog Millionaire’ featurette, 12 deleted scenes, and a ‘Slumdog Cutdown’ feature.

BEST PRICE

$15.99 $16.99 $19.99
