Kidman & Pacino in "Prosecution" Remake?

by | July 13, 2006 | Comments

Billy Wilder‘s 1957 film "Witness for the Prosecution" is rather excellent, which is why most (old) movie fans will take exception to the news that … a remake is coming. But at least it’ll have an interesting pedigree. In addition to Al Pacino and Nicole Kidman, the new "Witness" will come with director Michael Radford ("Il Postino," "The Merchant of Venice") attached.

Courtesy of ComingSoon.net: "Italian Newspaper "Il Giorno" told yesterday, that Director Michael Radford, while opening Italian "Global Film & Music Fest" in Ischia with the first screening of his film "Flawless" starring Demi Moore revealed also his next movie: the remake of Billy Wilder’s 1957 masterpiece "Witness for the Prosecution" starring Marlene Dietrich, with the new involvement of Nicole Kidman and Al Pacino in the starring roles."

The 1957 classic was based on an Agatha Christie play, and one can only assume the remake will stick closely to the original film. No point in remaking an Agatha Christie story if you’re just going to monkey around with it, right?
