13 (Tzameti) gets it’s Hollywood remake

The year may only be a third of the way through, but I reckon 13 (Tzameti), by first time Georgian director Géla Babluani, will be hard to beat as its best film. As I said at the time it’s a near perfect thriller.

What was also obvious at the time was that this was film destined to be remade by Hollywood. And so it has come to pass. Fortunately, Babluani will have a hand in it. At the time we joked that they’d put Tom Hanks in the leading role… buy it (don’t rent, you’ll want to keep) to see why that would be so funny.
