The Long Good Friday set for Hollywood remake

Hollywood is out of ideas once more - and is heading over to the UK (again) for a spot of inspiration. This time they're lining up a remake of The Long Good Friday. As Bob Hoskins might say: "It's a diabolical liberty!"

Let's be honest, it's a film that's pretty much defined by Bob Hoskins and its London setting. But amazingly, the remake is due to be set in Miami and most likely, without Bob Hoskins. What that leaves us with, apart from the title and a basic plotline, isn't clear - probably a nightmare on the big screen on a par with The Wicker Man, Get Carter and The Italian Job updates.

The movie goes into production in 2008, directed by Paul W S Anderson, who promises "an updated setting and contemporary overtones". I think I'll be sticking to the original - and if you've not seen that, I suggest you check out the trailer below and go buy it with the money saved from next year's cinema trip.
