Warrior director Gavin O'Connor to helm remake of Tell No One

11.21.2013

One of the projects that Ben Affleck had to drop due to his schedule is a remake of the French film TELL NO ONE. Gavin O'Connor, director of WARRIOR and most recently, JANE GOT A GUN has stepped in to take over helping duties from Affleck.

The story is based on a novel from Harlan Coben, and was made into a film in 2008 by Guillaume Canet. It centers on "a doctor who was a suspected of foul play when his wife disappeared and finds himself under scrutiny once again when two new bodies show up and his wife's case is reopened. Things get even more strange when he receives an email from his wife."

Chris Terrio (AGRO) penned the script.

I've heard many great things about Canet's film. Certainly for those who haven't had the chance to see it a remake might bring more attention to the material and writer Coben's other works.

Ah I hate these options - I'm fine with the news, but not with the writing again. So Connor is just taking over "helping duties?" He's getting coffee for the actors? Or is he directing the god damn film? I guess I have to go neutral

Well, every time I underestimate a film Gavin O'Connor has done, it ends up flooring me. I'm onto you good sir.

I'm fine with it but I don't think we should call it a remake. That's like saying Japan made a film based on Watchmen and we're remaking that film. No, we're still doing an adaptation. This has nothing to do with the French film. Sorry for the nitpicking but I'm a big fan of Harlan Coben.

Original was okay

The original movie was good, but in comparison. To some other murder mystery movies, it's was par for the course. I think with a tighter script this could be a good remake. Plus, after what Gavin O'Connor did with Warrior makes me excited for this.

Color me interested

O'Connor has built a nice resume and is a pretty solid director. I like his style...he's not, but get kind of a Michael Mann vibe from him..
