Palomar Pictures are developing remakes of last year’s French heist movie “Joseph and the Girl” and the 2001 Norwegian film “Elling” reports Variety.
The original ‘Joseph’ follows an aging con artist who plots a casino heist with the daughter of his former cellmate.
“Killer Elite” director Gary McKendry is helming and co-writing ‘Joseph’ with Matt Sherring. Shooting will begin in March.
“Elliot”, the remake of ‘Elling’, is based on Ingvar Ambjornsen’s novel “Blood Brothers” which follows a man in his 40s and his struggle to function normally in society.
Jay Roach, Larry Stuckey and Tom McCarthy are all having a crack at the script.
