Bientôt le remake de Young Sherlock Holmes ? Paramount Wants Chris Columbus To Remake His Own YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES
Août 14, 2012
La société de production cinématographique américaine Paramount pense à faire un remake du film de 1985 Young Sherlock Holmes (Le Secret de la pyramide). Chris Columbus a été contacté pour étudier le projet d'une nouvelle version de son film.
Rappelons que Nicholas Rowe et Alan Cox, les comédiens qui interprètent Sherlock Holmes et Watson, vont, eux, bientôt tourner une nouvelle aventure de Sherlock Holmes où le détective sera opposé à Frankenstein (lire ici).
Paramount has tapped director Chris Columbus and his 1492 Pictures to come in and steer a planned remake of the 1985 film YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES.
Columbus, who last directed “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” and produced the Oscar-nominated film “The Help”, currently has well over twenty projects in varying stages of development, including; a Percy Jackson sequel, the John Grisham adaptaion “Calico Joe”, the remakes of “Troll Hunter” and “Hello Ghost”, the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sci-fi/comedy “The Secret Lives of Road Crews”, the period drama “The Cypress House” and the military drama “Home Front”. To say he has a busy slate ahead of him is an understatement. But, keeping in mind that he and his 1492 Pictures are producing a few of those as well eases some of the workload.
As for the planned remake, Paramount is hoping to kickstart its own Sherlock Holmes franchise with a younger, fresher spin on the iconic character to directly combat the Warner Brothers take starring Robert Downey Jr. & Jude Law. The original “Young Sherlock Holmes”, which was written by Columbus, executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and directed by none other than Barry Levinson, centered on a pair or young teens in Holmes and Watson, both meeting at boarding school, and quickly getting into mischief as they stumble upon and begin to investigate a suspicious series of murders.
As of this moment there is no word as to who will return for producing duties.
