Indulge us for a moment. Nicolas Winding Refn's "Pusher" trilogy was never meant to be a triptych, let alone a multi-language spawning remake series (there has already been a U.K. produced, Hindi language version). Refn's original "Pusher" gained critical acclaim more than 15 years ago in Denmark, but the now celebrated director faltered badly on his follow-up picture "Fear X." He refinanced his home to guarantee it was completed properly and then went bankrupt when the film turned out to be a flop.
