Branagh, Caine + Law Team Up For Sleuth Remake
KENNETH BRANAGH will direct MICHAEL CAINE and JUDE LAW in the remake of classic movie SLEUTH.
Caine, who played MILO TINDLE in the 1972 thriller will play co-star LAURENCE OLIVIER's part in the remake - adapted from ANTHONY SHAFFER's play by HAROLD PINTER - while Law will take on Caine's original role.
It's the first time Law, who is also co-producing the remake with Branagh, and Caine have worked together, although both British actors have played love rat ALFIE on the big screen.
Production on the film will begin later this month (JAN07) at Twickenham Studios in London.
Sleuth tells the story of a wealthy author and his efforts to outwit an out-of-work actor (Law) who is having an affair with the writer's wife in the rooms and corridors of his exquisitely modernised Georgian manor.
