"Empire" Director to Remake Fritz Lang Film

by | June 22, 2005 | Comments

Reuters beings some remake news: Director Franc Reyes (2002’s "Empire") has been tapped by Fox & Regency to helm a remake of Fritz Lang‘s 1956 thriller "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt." Noir-master Lang passed away in 1976, and "Doubt" was one of the immortal filmmaker’s last English-language productions.

To those who may be unfamiliar with Lang’s original film, it centers on "a newsman who intentionally frames himself for a murder he didn’t commit in order to point out the dangers of circumstantial evidence and to expose an overzealous district attorney who has manipulated evidence in the past to gain convictions. Everything is going as planned until his friend, the one person who can exonerate him, is killed."

No word on casting just yet, but Fox aims to get the "Doubt" remake rolling this September.
