We cleared from long time that Hollywood writers going through a severe crisis of inspiration and are not able to come up with original ideas because not even a single day pass without writing another classic movie that is taken in the viewfinder to become subject a remake at all necessary, but the latest trend is downright bizarre remake or reboot as directed by filmmakers who put their signature on original movies that inspire.
After Ridley Scott decided to return to science fiction thriller “Blade Runner” in 1982, Michael Haneke has remade after a decade with accents horror thriller “Funny Games” in 1997 in an English version, and George Sluizer revisited in 1993 the thriller “The Vanishing” in 1988, also Englishman Stephen Frears came to meet with writer Peter Prince and producer Jeremy Thomas and to make a remake of the gangster thriller and assassins professionals “The Hit” from 1984, which developed over an action comedy.
In the original movie, Myron (Tim Roth) and Braddock (John Hurt) are two paid killers, hired by the Mafia from London to capture the informant Willie Parker (Terence Stamp) in his hideout from Spain and to drag into Paris to be executed, only professional assassins are unable to carry out the mission and nothing is going according to the plan, misfortunes and fun events are in almost all the moments during their journey through Europe.
The producer Jeremy Thomas has confirmed to journalists from Variety.com that the remake “The Hit” is on their table, but in an early stage, the action is moved from Spain and France in the United States and Mexico and the North American gangsters, not British. “The Hit” from 1984 is dark, comic and visually exciting, is considered a valuable British thriller, but it is unlikely that U.S. viewers flock to the cinema for that reason alone, why not understand exactly what they’ve relied Stephen Frears, Peter Prince and Jeremy Thomas when they decided to propose such a Hollywood project.
