Sony Classics Captures the "Sleuth"
Striving forward amidst the strong competition among film companies, Sony Pictures Classics has satisfyingly acquired rights to distribute high-profile drama "Sleuth", Variety has reported.
A remake of the 1972 film of the same title made based on a play written by Anthony Shaffer, the flick follows an older writer and a younger actor as they spend a weekend trying to outwit each other after the writer learns the actor has been having an affair with his wife. Shooting is slated to begin in the U.K this month with Michael Caine and Jude Law starring.
The picture has long been a passion project for Law, who is also seating as producer via his Riff Raff Productions alongside Castle Rock and Media Rights Capital. Meanwhile, "Hamlet" helmer Kenneth Branagh is in charge to direct from Harold Pinter's script.
