Nikita Gets Second TV Remake

Hollywood is about to undergo a third attempt at remaking Luc Besson’s 1990 French action classic “Nikita” (aka. “La Femme Nikita”).

Previously the film was redone in 1993 as “Point of No Return” (aka. “The Assassin”) starring Bridget Fonda. Four years later Peta Wilson starred as the titular street felon turned elite assassin for the USA Network cable TV series “La Femme Nikita” which ran from 1997 to 2001.

Now The CW has picked up a new series version says The Hollywood Reporter. This incarnation features a different spin on the story, this time Nikita goes rogue and a new assassin is trained to replace her.

“Supernatural” and “Chuck” executive producer McG will serve in the same capacity on the series alongside Peter Johnson.
