Hollywood Remake Clock Strikes High Noon

Nope, nothing is sacred. Not one single thing.

John Wayne‘s least favorite Western is making its way back to a theater near you.

We’re talking about High Noon, the thinly veiled swipe at McCarthyism that Wayne called “the most un-American thing” he’d ever seen — and earned a stack of Academy Awards, including a Best Actor nod for Gary Cooper. And since nobody in Hollywood knows how to leave well enough alone, we’re also talking about a remake.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the deal went down on Monday. From the article:

Remake rights to the 1952 classic Western “High Noon,” starring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly, were acquired Monday at AFM by producer Mark Headley, actor Christopher Mitchum and their business partner, Toni Covington.

Rights were secured from actress Karen Sharp Kramer, wife of the late Stanley Kramer, producer of the iconic original about a town marshal forced to face a gang of killers by himself.

The newly formed Los Angeles-based High Noon Prods. is seeking a director and a star to play the lead and hopes to begin shooting early next year with a target budget of about $20 million, Headley said.
