Miramax has debuted the first trailer for The Debt, a remake of the 2007 Israeli thriller of the same name. Directed by John Madden (Shakespeare in Love), The Debt posits Helen Mirren, Tom Wilkinson, and Ciaran Hinds as older versions of the characters played by Jessica Chastain, Sam Worthington, and Marton Csokas. Check out the trailer and synopsis after the jump.
The screenplay is credited to Kick-Ass co-writers Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman; The Playlist calls it “certainly one of the best things they’ve written.” I’ll believe such praise for any script that attracts the likes of Dame Helen Mirren and Tom Wilkinson (whom I would knight if I had the power) at this stage in their seasoned careers. Honestly, the trailer doesn’t particularly grab me, but the talent attached makes this one to look out for.
Miramax has slated The Debt for limited release on December 29, 2010. Here’s the official synopsis:
In 1965, three young Israeli Mossad agents on a secret mission capture and kill a notorious Nazi war criminal. Now, thirty years later, a man claiming to be the Nazi has surfaced in the Ukraine and one of the former agents must go back undercover to seek out the truth.
