“Sleeping With The Enemy” Gets A Remake

Sleeping With The Enemy Gets A Remake

It normally deals in awards fare, but Fox Searchlight is going a bit pulpier it seems with plans for a remake of the Julia Roberts-led 1991 trashy stalker thriller “Sleeping With The Enemy”.

Damian Jones (“The Iron Lady,” “Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie”) will produce the project which has set emerging filmmaker Nia DaCosta (“Little Woods”) as writer and director of what will be a “reimagining” of the property.

Based on Nancy Price’s 1987 novel, the original film had Roberts playing a woman trying to escape her abusive and ultimately murderous husband. The movie was a hit, making $175 million off a $20 million budget.
