Nearly 30 years after the original film was released in theaters, David Fincher‘s movie The Game is being remade on television.
The 1997 thriller is about a wealthy investment banker named Nicholas Van Orton, played by Michael Douglas, who is invited to a mysterious game by his estranged brother, resulting in the emergence of a deadly web of paranoia and dark secrets.
The film, which also starred Sean Penn and Deborah Kara Unger, was a box office disappointment compared to Fincher’s previous film, Se7en, but received strong reviews and has since gained a cult following.
The Adaptation Will Be a Scarier Version of the Original Movie
Deadline has announced that Scream creator Kevin Williamson has signed a major new deal with Universal Television to develop a series of projects for the studio. One of these projects announced to be in the works is a TV remake of The Game, which he is said to be developing with the original film’s writers, John Brancato and Michael Ferris. It is stated that, unlike his other projects, The Game is only in “internal development” and does not currently have a specific platform or team of writers.
Discussing his thoughts about the story of David Fincher’s The Game, the director states that he sees the biggest problem with the movie in the third act and that it should continue at a better pace.
Fans of the film think the ending fits the themes of the film and is perfect for a modern retelling. The film puts the audience in a difficult situation to watch due to the feeling of loneliness of an arrogant character, and he states that today’s technological developments will further increase this feeling.
Similar themes are expected to be explored in Fincher’s latest work, The Killer, and how technology can be used against the main character as the plot unfolds, resulting in a scarier version of The Game.
