Israeli dark comedy remade into American light comedy

Relatively recent company Overture Films will produce a sanitized remake of the 1997 Israeli hit The 92 Minutes Of Mr. Baum (original title Mar Baum aka מר באום). Like the original film, the remake will have a man going to the doctor’s to check out some test results, only to learn he has an aggessive form of cancer and will die in approximately 90/92 minutes. The story then deals with the hero’s last actions on Earth.

Titled 92 Minutes, the new film is being written by Daniel Taplitz (Chaos Theory). You can check out an early scene of the Israeli film above. It’s of rather poor picture quality, but it’s the only subtitled video I found. If you speak Hebrew however, you can check out the same scene in much better quality here.
