Before the filming of Headhunters concluded, Summit Entertainment studios purchased the rights to make a remake of the film in the United States. Sacha Gervasi, director of Hancock, has been said to be attached to the remake whenever that may be. I am highly anticipated the release of the American version of the Norwegian hit Headhunters. However, I am also doubtful that Gervasi will be able to capture the magic of the original.
With Argo, Ben Affleck has now established himself as one of the premiere directors in Hollywood. Argo marks the 3rd film that Affleck has directed and it every bit as good as his previous two, Gone Baby Gone and The Town respectively. Actors tend to have limited success when they take the director’s chair. Fortunately, Ben Affleck has been immune to that and had has once again directed one of the best movies of the year.
