"36" Is Martin Campbell's Lucky Number



New Zealand filmmaker Martin Campbell is attached to direct Paramount Pictures' remake of the 2004 French thriller "36 quai des orfevres."

What a quick move Martin Campbell is carrying out this time. Just few days after reports of him being in negotiations to direct 20th Century Fox's "Unstoppable", which he finally is set to helm, the New Zealand filmmaker is already plotted to perform the same duty in Paramount Pictures' thriller "36."

A remake of the 2004 French-language feature "36 quai des orfevres", the picture concerns two detectives who try to solve a series of armored car robberies in the hopes of landing a promotion promised to whoever catches the perpetrators. Swiss filmmaker Marc Forster originally was brought in to handle the helming task from script penned by Dean Georgaris.

In terms of casting, Robert De Niro and George Clooney have both been reported being attached to topline, but their inclusion now seem unclear as it is informed that the screenplay will be rewritten by author-screenwriter Richard Price and feature the two detectives in their thirties instead. De Niro still serves as producer, though, accompanied by Georgaris, Michael Aguilar, and Jane Rosenthal.
