Just because you’re a quintessentially classic movie and a multi-Academy Award winning movie doesn’t mean you don’t get a remake. The classic Western drama, High Noon, is having the dust blown off it and is being brought into the 2st century for a brand new remake.
The classic 1952 Western drama, High Noon, is the latest movie to be getting a remake to bring into the modern age. The movie has a clean four Academy Awards to it’s name including one for Gary Cooper as Best Actor. This will undoubtedly put some pressure on the remake to be at least something of a respectable reboot.
The movie is set around Marhsall Will Kane who is ready to hang up his boots and pistol from a life of law. But, as is always the way when you’re retiring from the law in a movie, he discovers that a bandit he put away has escaped and is out for revenge. In a twist of fate, the small town he has always protected is turning it’s back on him and offers him no help, so the clock is ticking for the long lawman as his enemy closes in on him for revenge.
The movie is set to be based in more modern times, with a Mexican cartel storyline as opposed to classic Western. So we’re imagining something more along the lines of Sicario with modern police forces and drug trafficking. Relativity Studios are the ones who will be developing the movie with their new boss, Dana Brunetti, saying“High Noon is one of the most iconic films of all time. I’m honored to be a part of modernizing this timeless story and bringing it to a new generation.”
