Angel Heart remake

10.01.2008by: Ammon Gilbert
Variety announced this morning that producers Michael De Luca, Alison Rosenzweig, and Michael Gaeta have joined forces to bring a remake of the 1987 voodoo flick ANGEL HEART to the big screen.

Of all the movies to remake, I'm surprised they're going after ANGEL HEART. Starring Mickey Rourke and Robert DeNiro, it's an underrated film that packs the nightmarish punch that will be very difficult to top. But I guess that hasn't stopped remakes from being made in the past, right?

The producers scooped up rights to the film as well as rights to the original novel by William Hjortsberg from which the film was based on. So maybe it'll actually be another take on the original source material and not a full blown remake? Maybe...

The novel follows the exploits of Harry Angel, a New York detective hired by a mysterious client to track down a once-popular performer indebted to him. While pursuing this seemingly routine investigation, Harry encounters dark and supernatural forces.

While I'm all for remakes that set out to improve on where the original failed, I don't think that can be said for ANGEL HEART, as it's considered a classic in its on right. Will that stop them from continuing to remake this or any other flick in the future? Not bloody likely. Stick around for more on the ANGEL HEART remake as we hear it!
