Memento Is Getting a Remake

Doe's every movie really need a remake today?

Maybe the filmmakers have a memory condition and forgot about the original

This sounds familiar: a movie about a man hunting down his wife’s killer while suffering from a mysterious form of amnesia is coming to theaters.

Yup, director Christopher Nolan’s breakthrough film Memento is getting the remake treatment. AMBI Pictures announced that it will finance and produce a new version of the 2000 film that starred Guy Pearce as a man suffering from anterograde amnesia, which prevents him from forming new memories, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film’s unique storytelling—one storyline was told in reverse order while another was chronological—earned Nolan widespread critical acclaim upon release.

The company earned the rights to remake the movie after acquiring Exclusive Media Group, whose library also boasts films such as Donnie Darko and Cruel Intentions.

“Memento is a masterpiece that leaves audiences guessing not just throughout the film, but long after as well, which is a testament to its daring approach.” AMBI Pictures co-head Monika Bacardi said in a statement. “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.”

I just mean.gif when I saw that it was official.

I was a bit tight to hear that rights to the movie were going to this and that studio *sigh*

It's bound to be worse than the OG.

It's only been 15 years and is still kinda fresh in people's memories. I wonder if they'll make big changes or just be lazy and do the same movie just with different actors.

Why remake good movies? On another note, I think someone should remake Edward Scissorhands / Beetlejuice / Nightmare Before Christmas. Tim Burton LOVES to remake movies so how great would it be for one of his own to be remade.

I think I heard rumblings of a Beetlejuice remake. Not sure how to feel about that.

I've said it before but if they were smart they should be focusing on remaking the somewhat average/mediocre/bad movies that had promise with concept or premise and only needed a better vision or some tweaks with cast, director or parts of the script.
