Jude Law to Star in Remake of Sleuth

Friday, September 8th, 2006 at 13:21 by RJ Barker

TheSlant suffered serious financial loss today when its high tech film success prognosticator the Turkey-o-meter spontaneously combusted at the news Jude Law is to star in another Michael Caine remake.

Law, who seems unable to learn from past errors, is taking the role originally filled by Michael Caine in ‘Sleuth’ and Caine himself is taking the role originally played by Lawrence Olivier. The film, based on the Tony Award winning play of the same name, details the labyrinthine games played by two men, Wyke and Tindle. Wyke is well aware that Tindle is having an affair with his wife but says he is delighted as this allows him to continue his affair with another woman, from this point plots twist and crosses are doubled.

However, as the premature death of our technologically sophisticated Turkey-o-meter shows, the early signs for this aren’t good. It stars Jude Law (Alfie, Sky Captain and the World Without Plot). It’s a Michael Caine remake (Alfie, The Italian Job, and the execrable Get Carter). The final nail in the coffin for our poor machine was the fact that it’s directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Start stockpiling your tomatoes now.

    I was so gonna cover this one. It looks like a classic right up there with the recent “Wicker Man” remake.

    It looks like a classic right up there with the recent â??Wicker Manâ?ť remake.

    Remake my arse. The only way I can cope with the existence of that particular travesty is to think of it as a completely different film.

    No I haven’t seen it. Never will either.

    “The Italian Job” anyone? Don’t get me started on that…
