Noted filmmaker Lasse Hallstrom will helm a remake of the 2005 French movie "Anthony Zimmer" for Spyglass Entertainment.
Coming to his next feature assignment, "An Unfinished Life" maker Lasse Hallstrom has reached deals with Spyglass Entertainment to direct "Anthony Zimmer", the studio's remake of the 2005 French film of the same name, Variety has revealed.
The original, written and directed by Jerome Salle, centers on a man who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.
In working on the Americanized version, Spyglass has already hired "Gosford Park" scribe Julian Fellowes to pen the script and reportedly is aiming to begin production by early 2008. Serving as producers are Spyglass' Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber, and Jonathan Glickman with Leslie Holleran, Hallstrom's longtime producing partner, being expected to join the threesome.
