The re-make of 451??

Am new to the board. My mother mentioned last week that Ray B. announced that Mel Gibson was starring in a re-make of F451. Now, I don't know if she her news wrong or if this is true. I KNOW a re-make of the movie had been in the works for many years at ICON Productions (Mel's film shingle), but it died a few years ago. So...has it cropped up again? Anyone know?

I did hear/read something to the effect that F451 was going to be re-made; I want to say Mel Gibson is having something to do with it, but I can't be 100% sure.

Let me jump in here real quick: some time back, Gibson's company was involved with a re-make of F-451. That never panned out but I understand Frank Darabont is now on board and the last I heard that's still a go. But, no, sadly, Gibson is no longer involved.

Best,

Pete

A story has appeared over the last two days that director Ramin Bahrani (with whose work I am not familiar) will write, executive produce, and direct a remake of FAHRENHEIT 451 for HBO Films. No further information appears to be presently available. Here are links to the story:

I wouldn't worry. Proposals appear all the time on films this or that. Often they appear because the producer/director is seeking support and testing the waters.

We will see. Remakes are often a hard sell.

I tend to agree with Robert, that announced plans for films often go unfulfilled. But HBO tends to do what it says it will do, so I am more confident with this one.

I haven't seen any of Ramin Bahrani's previous work, but I know that it has received critical acclaim.

All in all, I am cautiously optimistic.

HBO has announced that its new version of FAHRENHEIT 451 will air on May 19, 2018. The film stars Michael B. Jordan (of BLACK PANTHER fame) and Michael Shannon (the villain in THE SHAPE OF WATER).
