New Long Good Friday

05.16.2007
Continuing his reign of glossy (but narratively not very good) videogame adaptations, sequels and remakes, director Paul WS Anderson is churning out his version of the outstanding British gangster flick THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY.

The tight, violent 1980 crime tale starred a fierce Bob Hoskins as a London mob boss whose big plans fall apart during one extremely bad day (during which Helen Mirren, Paul "Belloq" Freeman and Pierce Brosnan make appearances). With his update, Anderson "promises to reveal today’s gritty underworld in an equally shocking fashion." And probably with lots of Dutch angles and oversaturated colors.

Anderson is currently sacrificing satire for 'splosions (one assumes) with his remake of DEATH RACE 2000, while Hoskins is tooling around the post-apocalyptic British countryside with Rhona Mitra (lucky devil) in Neil Marshall's sci-fi flick DOOMSDAY.
Extra Tidbit: One of the original film's working titles was the Seagal-esque CITADEL OF BLOOD.
