Sony has scored the English-language remake rights to the 2010 Oscar-nominated French hit “A Prophet”.
The original film follows an imprisoned young man’s rise after being mentored by a powerful crime boss. Neal H. Moritz (“The Fast and the Furious”) and Toby Jaffe (“Total Recall” remake) are producing.
Moritz says: “This is an epic crime saga with compelling characters and original storytelling. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to make an English language version of the film and I am grateful to have the trust of Jacques Audiard and his producers.”
