Paul Haggis Remaking "Cell 211," Similar to "Die Hard"Submit Comment
CBS Films is acquiring the remake rights to the Spanish language film "Cell 211" and has attached Paul Haggis (Crash) to write the script and possibly direct.

Plot: A newly hired prison guard wants to make a good impression on his bosses by coming in a day early to get a tour of the facility. Suddenly, a brutal prison riot breaks out and he is knocked unconscious. When he awakens, the guard is forced to assume the role of a prisoner alongside the most dangerous killers alive. He tries to defuse the uprising and escape before the prisoners realize who he really is.

The film is an action thriller that's been described as "Die Hard" in prison. The original was released last year and ended up winning Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay and fire other awards at the Goya Awards, which are the Spanish Oscars.

That looked good, but the american speaker voice was just annoying. Made it sound like a Steven Seagal-movie.

When I went back to Spain, I saw this movie and it was amazing!!! I really do not want Hollywood to remake this at all. They are going to put their sh*tty actioner formula all over this and ruin it for everyone. Well at least I have the original.

The original looks pretty f*cking good. Too bad Hollywood is going to f*ck up the remake.

@Rambo

All in the editing (for the trailer) ... European editing has an art feel to it (even action movies) where Hollywood goes for the wallet (even if the trailer is sh*t or gives away the whole movie).

I really wish people would stop riding Die Hard's coattails. That movie came out two decades ago. Either frame your movie independently of some other film that has no material connection to your movie, or don't bother framing it at all, because it's just annoying.

And besides, Die Hard was Die Hard. There will not be another one. Saying some ass film is like Die Hard on a boat (Under Siege), or train (Under Siege II), or a plane (Executive Decision), and now prison, is like saying Mahler was just an Austrian Mozart, when we all f*cking know he wasn't.
