Noah Oppenheim is set to write the remake of the acclaimed Swedish crime thriller Snabba Cash. The story centers on a man living a double-life as a coke dealer. Oppenheim first generated attention when Steven Spielberg cast his eye on Oppenheim’s script about Jackie Kennedy’s life in the days following JFK’s assassination. In addition to reporting that Oppenheim will pen the remake of Snabba Cash, 24 Frames confirms that Rachel Weisz is attached to play Jackie and that Darren Aronofsky is on board to direct.
The Swedish version of Snabba Cash will be distributed in the U.S. under the far more generic title “Easy Money” even though it’s so much more fun to say “Snabba Cash“.
