The Secret In Their Eyes Chiwetel Ejiofor Gwyneth Paltrow
First announced way back in 2010, not long after Argentinian film "The Secret In Their Eyes" won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, a remake was in the works at Warner Bros. with Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass," "Breach") slated to write and direct. The project hadn't shown signs of any real momentum, with word surfacing in 2011 that Denzel Washington had been offered the lead. He didn't take it, but two actors are now aboard with the movie now headed to the Cannes marketplace.

In 2010 when "The Secret In Their Eyes" took home the Oscar for Best Foreign Film, it seemed totally out of left field. And for good reason, because while the Academy had all received screeners of the movie, it had yet to hit theaters for anybody else. But when it did finally arrive, it quickly became clear why Juan José Campanella's work took home the gold. It's a twisty thriller, an intelligent procedural and moving drama all rolled into one exciting package, directed with flair by Campanella, whose complex soccer match sequence/tracking shot became one of the major talking points around the film. Of course, Hollywood came calling and a remake was quickly underway with Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass," "Breach") set to write and direct. And then...nothing. Until now.
