“Memento”–the thriller that helped to raise Christopher Nolan’s profile when it was released 15 years ago–will be remade, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In a statement from AMBI Pictures, which will finance the effort, executive Monika Bacardi says the new version of the film will remain true to the 2000 original.
“Memento is a masterpiece that leaves audiences guessing not just throughout the film, but long after as well, which is a testament to its daring approach,” Bacardi said in a statement. “We intend to stay true to Christopher Nolan’s vision and deliver a memorable movie that is every bit as edgy, iconic and award-worthy as the original. It’s a big responsibility to deliver something that lives up to the mastery of the original, but we are extremely excited and motivated to bring this puzzle back to life and back into the minds of moviegoers.”
“Momento” starred Guy Pearce who tries to solve his wife’s murder but is troubled by an extraordinary brain injury that wipes his memory clean in a matter of brief moments.
