Appian Way, an L.A.-based film production company founded by actor and producer Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson has just bought remake rights to Another Round. The film won Best International Film at last night’s Oscars.
The film will be an adaptation of Thomas Vinterberg’s foreign-language movie as an English remake. DiCaprio himself is set to star as the lead, in place of the original film’s role played by Mads Mikkelsen, in the upcoming movie, as a middle-aged man going through an existential crisis. Vinterberg will be involved in the remake as an executive producer. According to reports, Appian Way is already looking for writers, so movie-buffs can expect the film to start production soon.
