Ron Howard reportedly has an eye to direct a remake of French film "Cache" for Universal Pictures.
Though already attached to direct couple of film projects, Ron Howard turns out to still have an eye on another. The noted filmmaker is reportedly putting interest in helming thriller drama "Cache", a remake of French feature of the same title of Universal Pictures production.
Written and directed by Michael Haneke, the original, a 2005 release, featured Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche as a married couple who find mysterious videotapes of surveillance planted on their porch which gradually reveal whoever is making them knows more about the husband's past than he would like them to. It is said that the new version, to be set in the U.S., will amp up the suspense and consequences.
In bringing the project to the surface, Universal has already had Brian Grazer to produce for Imagine, which acquired the rights from Plum Pictures. Meanwhile, Plum's Celine Rattray is set to executive produce alongside Randy Simon with Galt Niederhoffer and Daniela Taplin Lundberg co-producing.
