Michelle Williams and Joel Edgerton to Star in ‘The Double Hour’ Remake
One (somewhat easy) way to get your film made in America is to make it in a foreign language first. David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is one example. Later this year, Oldboy will get the same treatment. It now appears that The Double Hour – a movie I reviewed on DVD some time ago – is going through this process.
The original was a thriller about a woman and an ex-cop that meet while speed dating. As their relationship progresses, things get darker.
The English-language version will apparently star Michelle Williams (Oz the Great and Powerful) and Joel Edgerton (Zero Dark Thirty). Other details aren’t available yet, but I urge you to see the Italian version when you get a chance!
