More remakes and movie news

Just catching up with more movie news…

The Lodger (IMDB)

David Ondaatje (IMDB) is directing a contemporary version of the Marie Belloc Lowndes novel (available to download at Project Gutenberg).

Number 13 (IMDB)

Not a remake of Hitchcock’s unfinished film, but a film in which “the director gets caught up in a Hitchcockian dilemma when he ends up in a love triangle with two crew members while making the film — when the lead actor turns up dead, the editor suspects the director and tries to uncover the truth”. “Little Britain” star Matt Lucas was originally announced as the actor playing Hitchcock, but it now seems that Dan Fogler will play that role. Also linked to the project are Ewan McGregor, Emily Mortimer, and Ben Kingsley.

Easy Virtue (IMDB)

Stephan Elliott, who directed “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert“, is slated to film a version of Noel Coward‘s play.

Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho

“Nip/Tuck” writer Ryan Murphy is set to direct a screenplay based on the Stephen Rebello book of the same title. Sir Anthony Hopkins is set to play Hitchcock, and Dame Helen Mirren will play his wife Alma.
