Dark Knight Trilogy director Christopher Nolan made his first footprint with the Memento remake today after nearly a decade and a half since it’s original release.
Exclusive Media Group’s film catalog was recently acquired by AMBI Pictures, giving the company access to films like Donnie Darko, Sliding Doors and Cruel Intentions among hundreds of other titles.
AMBI head Monika Bacardi promised that the company intends “to stay true to Christopher Nolan’s vision and deliver a memorable movie that is every bit as edgy, iconic and award-worthy as the original.” Bacardi added, “It’s a big responsibility to deliver something that lives up to the mastery of the original, but we are extremely excited and motivated to bring this puzzle back to life and back into the minds of moviegoers.”
The company intends to debut the remake on a larger stage than the original as the 2000 film wasn’t much more than an indie film at the time of its original release and now the Memento name bears a lot more significance.
The original had starred Guy Pearce as a man who suffered short-term memory loss and must use a system of notes, photographs, and tattoos in the search for the man who murdered his wife. The story was told in a unique order, shuffling between black-and-white and color to reveal events to the audience.
As of right now, there has been no word of an official release date but, we will be keeping a close eye on developments as they occur.
