Taxi Remake To Go Ahead

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE star JIMMY FALLON has joined QUEEN LATIFAH for a remake of acclaimed French film TAXI.

The English-language movie will be produced by LUC BESSON, who was involved in the 1998 original.

It features a speedy cab driver, played by Latifah, who teams with Fallon's eager young policeman to solve a series of bank robberies.

The project is due to start shooting in September (03) for 20TH CENTURY FOX and director TIM STORY.
