Another remake is on it’s way to theaters and it’s another classic that some fans might not be too happy with. Christopher Nolan is a director with a wide following and his earlier films have been special to his fans. So it’s quite a lot to hear that only 15 years after it was made, Nolan’s 2000 breakout thriller, Memento, is getting remade. The film company AMBI Pictures has announced that they will finance and produce the remake of the film.
Memento was released by Newmarket Films and was nominated for best screenplay and best editing and put Nolan on the map as a major talent in the film industry. It was an indie hit as it made $25.5 million at the domestic box office, but has built a following, especially among film lovers since it was released.
Monika Bacardi, one of the heads of AMBI, told Hollywood Reporter that “Memento is a masterpiece that leaves audience guessing not just throughout the film, but long after as well, which is a testament to its daring approach. 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.”
