Field remakes Inbetweeners, Lowery reunites with Affleck

Field remakes Inbetweeners, Lowery reunites with Affleck

Jim Field Smith (“Butter”) is directing “Virgins America”, a remake of British TV and Film hit “The Inbetweeners”.

Though MTV has already remade the hit Brit series, it was canned after only one season. (The Hollywood Reporter)

David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”) will direct the sci-fi tale “To Be Two”.

Casey Affleck, who stars in Lowery’s latest, will reunite with the director on the film.

”To Be Two adapts the short story To Be Two or Not To Be and deals with identity and the self. It’s set in a world where teleportation exists and people are scanned, the digital self sent to Mars, reconstructed atom by atom, while the original is vaporized. The story then posits the idea of the teleportation machine malfunctioning and not vaporizing the original person. Who is now real? And how do experiences make them different? And what happens when the authorities want to erase the original person?”

The film’s tone is said to be like “Looper”.
