The team behind Gone Girl is set to reunite for a Hitchcock remake. The 1951 Strangers on a Train, based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel, will get a new contemporary twist. Ben Affleck and David Fincher have brought in Gillian Flynn (author and screenwriter of Gone Girl) to write the script. The film will have the simple title Strangers.
In the original 1951 Hitchcock film, two strangers meet on a train, a young tennis player and a charming psychopath. The psychopath suggests that because they each want to remove someone from their lives, they should exchange murders, and that way neither will get caught. The first murder is committed; then the psychopath tries to force the tennis player to complete the bargain.
In Affleck’s remake he plays a movie star in the middle of an Oscar campaign whose plane breaks down. He accepts a ride in a private plane from a wealthy stranger.
Gone Girl was certainly a success. We look forward to Strangers.
