Don’t Look Now!

Last Updated on July 28, 2021

I didn’t think I could be surprised anymore by a remake choice, but it turns out I was wrong. The Hollywood Reporter noted today that Mark Gordon will produce a new version of DON’T LOOK NOW for Paramount Pictures.

The story centers on a couple, John and Laura Baxter, who go to Venice, Italy, to recuperate after the sudden death of their daughter only to encounter strange visions that suggest their daughter’s presence.

The movie is mostly famous for a particularly steamy sex scene between stars Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, as well as for a weird, illogical, and in some views strangely perfect ending. That and the fact there aren’t really any traditional scares in the flick.

I have to admit I’m intrigued to see what approach they take since the flick’s dreamy sense of langor and confusion doesn’t exactly seem built for today’s audiences. Gordon has said he wants to make it “contemporary”, but in this case I have no idea how they’ll do that.

Mostly I hope they cast someone who is as scorchingly hot as Julie Christie was in her prime (she’s no slouch now BTW).
