Paul W.S. Anderson Can't Wait for "Friday"



"Resident Evil" director Paul W.S. Anderson is set to helm a remake of the 1980 British crime thriller "The Long Good Friday."

Taking a flight from his regular works in sci-fi movies and video game adaptations, Paul W.S. Anderson is going to direct "The Long Good Friday", a remake of the 1980 British crime thriller starring Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren, BBC News has revealed.

The original found Hoskins becoming an East End gangster whose criminal empire comes under attack from a wave of mysterious bombings. The new take, however, is said to be "refreshed" with a modern setting.

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to put a new spin on this classic film which promises to reveal today's gritty underworld in an equally shocking fashion," so Anderson said.

Shooting is slated to start next year in Miami under Handmade Films banner. No words yet on who will pen the script and star, so do stay tuned to this site for further information about the project.
