Rodrigo Garcia Helms Maid Remake

Rodrigo Garcia (“Passengers,” “Nine Lives”) is set to write and direct an English-language remake of “Live-In Maid” reports Variety.

The original Argentine film, directed by Jorge Gaggero, had Norma Aleandro playing a former socialite on the verge of turning sixty who has run out of money.

Despite her lack of funds, she clings to her housekeeper (Norma Argentina) as both a vestige of the good life and a personal confidante of three decades.

The remake is scheduled to begin shooting in mid-2008.
