The Stranger Gets a Remake
The Hollywood Reporter
We feel like it’s been a while since we last talked about remakes of movies over seven decades old, but alas Hollyweird is reaching back into its past to deliver a new version of the 1946 flick The Stranger.
THR reports Jack and Joseph Nasser of NGN Releasing are remaking the Orson Welles thriller The Stranger and have set Joseph Ruben to direct. The original was directed by Welles, who also acted in the film. Edward G. Robinson starred as an agent of the War Crimes Commission on the hunt for one of the engineers of the Holocaust, now hiding out in Connecticut.
Newcomer Alanna Belak wrote the script for the remake, which will focus on a reformed serial killer who has reinvented himself as a small-town professor but is visited by his former partner, who wants them to start killing together again.
More on this one as it comes.
