Jude Law to Reprise Michael Caine Again in "Sleuth" Remake

He did it in "Alfie," and he’ll do it again. Jude Law will star in the remake of the 1972 thriller, "Sleuth," as an adulterous hairdresser opposite Michael Caine — who appeared in the original as the hairdresser, opposite Sir Laurence Olivier.

Law must seem like a young Michael Caine to filmmakers, as he played another memorable Caine role as womanizing cad Alfie, in the 2004 remake of the same name. This time around, Caine’s back as well, playing the role of the jealous writer husband who entices his wife’s lover into a deadly mind game.

The face of the new "Sleuth."

The "Sleuth" remake will be directed by Kenneth Branagh, with a screenplay by Harold Pinter ("The Handmaid’s Tale"). The 1972 script was written by Anthony Shaffer from his own play.
