There have been big gaps in Kimberley Peirce CV, with her first film, Boys Don’t Cry coming in 1999, then nothing until Stop Loss in 2008 and we’ll getting her latest movie, a remake of Carrie, next year. She’s hoping there won’t be as big a gap until her follow-up, as she’s already signed up for a remake of the French thriller With a Friend Like Harry.
The original starred Laurent Lucas and Mathilde Seigner as Michel and Claire. The couple goes on vacation with their children and unintentionally meet up with Harry, an old classmate Michel doesn’t remember.
The plot thickens when Harry’s behaviour takes a turn for the worse. Dominik Moll directed the original film, which was nominated for the prestigious Palm D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival back in 2000. (Source: Variety)
