Joshua Marston to Write and Direct Remake of Italian Thriller THE DOUBLE HOUR

by     Posted 2 years, 254 days ago

An English-language remake of the 2009 Italian thriller The Double Hour is on its way, Joshua Marston will be the man to bring it to fruition. Risky Business reports that the Maria Full of Grace director will write and direct the Americanized remake.  The original film, directed by Giuseppe Capotondi, centered on a hotel maid and an ex-cop who fall in love after meeting at a speed-dating event, but when they retreat to the ex-cop’s employer’s house for a romantic evening, armed intruders arrive and “throw light on secrets from their past.” The 2009 film starred Ksenia Rappoport and Filippo Timi. I’ve yet to catch the film myself, but it sounds like an intriguing premise, and Marston isn’t necessarily a one-note/commercial director, so the remake should be interesting. The film will be produced by Roy Lee and Nicola Giuliano. Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the Italian original.

    I’m not into remakes (both from the American/English movies and European ones)..I didn’t like the idea of a remake for “Let Me In”, “Millenium Trilogy”, and so on..
    Anyway I’ve seen this film and although I don’t like very much “our” movies (the Italian ones) I definitely enjoyed this! I must admit it’s also very adaptable to the American type of cinema! :)
