Are you ready for another remake? How would you like to see a new version of the 2006 film, Tell No One? Unlike The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which was adapted from a foreign novel, turned into a foreign film, and then stolen by Hollywood, Tell No One was originally an English language book that was adapted into a French feature. According to The LA Times’ 24 Frames, the novel will be re-adapted for American audiences via Andrew Dominik.
Dominik has been writing a draft of the script for the English version and has been brought on to rework the story. He previously penned and directed the Brad Pitt vehicle, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford back in 2007. Apparently, the road to Tell No One has been a long one as the film has been quietly sitting in development.
The story centers on “a doctor who, after believing his wife has been murdered years before (and in fact after being named as a suspect in the case), begins getting mysterious messages suggesting she may still be alive.” The European version of the film was a commercial hit and a critical favorite, so it’s no surprise that they want to cash in on its credibility.
What do you think of Dominik adapting Tell No One? Have you seen the original?
