The Boys Don’t Cry director will be able to add another notch to her remake belt remake as she has been set to direct a remake of the psychological French thriller With a Friend Like Harry (Harry, un ami qui vous veut du bien).
Released back in 2000, the film originally co-written and directed by Dominik Moll, tells the Hitchcockian story of a family man joined on vacation by an old schoolmate, Harry, who he doesn’t remember; Harry seems to be just what the family needs with his carefree spirit and charm, but his efforts and advice eventually become mysteriously menacing.
