Michael Haneke has been working on a Hollywood-style remake of his 1997 'anti-thriller' Funny Games. The film is starring Tim Roth and Naomi Watts. This remake is aimed at a US audience not familiar with Michael Haneke's work.
Here the official trailer of Funny Games:
"A wealthy couple is trapped and tormented in their Hamptons holiday home by a pair of vicious psychopaths."
This trailer of Funny Games with the music in background reminds me of Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, Clockwork Orange:
Will the American public fall for Haneke's touch?
Time will tell...
