To Catch a Thief-remake

Har det noen gang vært lagd en virkelig god nyinnspilling av en Alfred Hitchcock-produksjon? (Jeg ser da bort i fra Hitchcocks egne remakes, og Brian De Palmas nesten-remakes). Da jeg denne uka leste om en varslet remake av To Catch a Thief, drevet frem av Piranha-manusforfatter Josh Stolberg, ble jeg i hvert fall ikke overbevist om dette er starten på en ny trend.

Josh Stolberg-sitat via

”I wrote, with Bobby [Florsheim], a remake of “To Catch a Thief” for Paramount. Neal Moritz is producing, and it’s exciting because it’s one of my favourite Hitchcock movies and it was fun to come at it from a different angle – make it a little bit more modern and “gadgety”. It’s the first script that I’ve ever written that [encompasses] a lot of heists and action sequences and.. it was a blast! I’m really excited. We just turned in the script to the studio a couple of months ago and they’re working on casting now. It takes place in Santarini… it’s a travelogue of the most amazing places on Earth.. it’s gonna be a fun, fun ride I think.”
