13 Tzameti to be remade by original director

Following in the footsteps of Michael Haneke (Funny Games) and the Pang Brothers (Bangkok Dangerous), French-Georgian filmmaker Géla Babluani will remake his 2005 thriller 13 Tzameti in English because American companies can’t be bothered to release a foreign film wide in the US.

One of the most talked about films at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and the 62nd Venice Film Festival, 13 Tzameti follows a young man who steals an envelope cointaining instructions for someone else, which he decides to carry out anyway.

Sam Riley (Control) will portray the main character in the movie, imaginatively entitled 13, that, like the original, will be shot in black and white. You can watch the original movie’s tense subtitled trailer above.
