"Chinaman" Revisited

October 9, 2006 (8:25 am) GMT
Benderspink, Sandbar Pictures, plus Fine & Mellow Productions have teamed up to develop a remake of Danish feature "Chinaman."

It makes three to carry out the plan, apparently. Benderspink, Sandbar Pictures, plus Fine & Mellow Productions have reached a deal to work together in bringing up a new film project titled "Chinaman", which turns out to be a remake of the 2005 Danish movie.

In developing the picture, the three companies have already appointed Harry Elfont to direct with Deborah Kaplan working on the script. The duo, who have been teaming up to write film scripts since mid-90s, recently sold their pitch of "99 Problems" to Joe Roth for Columbia Pictures.

As for the premise, the movie seems to closely follow the original version which revolves around a man who is offered to a business proposal whose results are far beyond his wildest dreams upon visiting a Chinese takeout restaurant.
