Jim Sheridan to Remake INTO THE WEST

by     Posted 2 years, 208 days ago


Jim Sheridan is planning to go forward in his career by looking back at it.  Screen Daily reports that Sheridan is set to direct a remake of Into the West.  Sheridan co-wrote Mike Newell‘s 1992 Irish film about “two young boys two young boys who escape the poverty of their Dublin council estate on adventure ‘into the west’ to find a mystical horse recently stolen from them.”  Gabriel Byrne played the boys’ father, and the film co-starred Ellen Barkin, Colm Meaney, and Brendan Gleeson.  The new movie “will re-imagine the earlier film’s themes in a new US setting.”

I’m not necessarily against Sheridan, but his work has seriously gone downhill since 2002′s In America.  He even asked that his name be removed from his last film, Dream House.  Perhaps going back to one of his 90s films will break his current slump.

    No, for the love of Oisin, don’t revisit this movie. Feck off!

    “will re-imagine the earlier film’s themes in a new US setting.” – err… two boys from Hell’s Kitchen race to California in a magical White Cadillac?
