Gal Gadot, To Catch A Thief, Eileen Jones, remake

If there’s one thing Hollywood loves, it’s remakes of classic films that don’t need to be remade in the first place. Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller To Catch A Thief is the next to receive the remake treatment as Deadline has reported that Eileen Jones is in negotiations to pen the script for Paramount Pictures.

The To Catch A Thief remake is slated to star Gal Gadot, who will also produce alongside Jason Varsano through their Pilot Wave banner. Fast Furious franchise producer Neal Moritz will also produce through his Original Films banner. Plot details about the remake aren’t known at this time but Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch A Thief starred Gary Grant as a retired thief who must prove his innocence after a string of new burglaries. Grace Kelly also starred in the film as the daughter of a wealthy widow targeted by the burglar.

Eileen Jones is best known for her work writing for the Lethal Weapon TV series as well as writing and producing Prodigal Son. She also had her pitch Highwayman picked up by New Line with Margot Robbie and Christina Hodson producing. As for Gal Gadot, she was recently seen starring alongside Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in Red Notice.
