Peter Hyams’ “One” being remade
Director Peter Hyams is said to be in development on a remake of his 80s sci-fi piece, ‘Capricorn One’. The ‘Time Cop’ and ‘Sound of Thunder’ helmer will produce, and Dave Dobkin (‘Shanghai Knights’) will direct.
The remake, imaginatively titled (hmm) “Capricorn 2”, has apparently been in the early development stages for about six months now, with a late ’07 start date being eyeballed.
The original film, written by Hyams, told of NASA faking a mission to Mars, and the company having to keep the secret. Elliot Gould, James Brolin and a pre-Bronco O.J Simpson starred. Peter Buchman (“Jurassic Park III”) will write the remake.
Regency are behind the redo. John Davis (“Norbit”, “I Robot 2”) is also onboard to produce.
Attempts to confirm or get a response out of Mr Hyams, or the company, have been unsuccessful at the time of writing.
