It won Best Foreign Film at the Oscars last year, and now it might win Best Film. Yes, The Secret in Their Eyes is getting a remake.
Warner Bros. have pounced on the Argentinian thriller (which was rather incredible) and plan to bring it to English audiences with the help of director Billy Ray. The Secret in Their Eyes told the tale of determined lawman Benjamin Esposito, who was obsessed with solving a brutal rape and murder from 25 years ago. Ray wrote and directed Shattered Glass and co-wrote State of Play's script, so he's not a bad fit for the slow-paced thriller.
But the most reassuring thing? Original director Juan Jose Campanella is on board as an executive producer. Although whether the whole endeavour is pointless will once again be up for debate.
