‘The Harder They Come’, The Easier They Remake

Monday, April 11 by

Hey, alright! They’re remaking that Jamaican crime film that I’ve never heard of before. Unless it’s something that fans hold in high regard and consider it sacrilege to mess with, in which case, boo!

The surprisingly non-pornographic The Harder They Come which starred Jimmy Cliff (who would later go on to write songs with Steven Seagal), is slated for an update. No cast or director have been attached, but Xingu Films (Moon, Snatch) are teaming with original helmer Perry Henzell’s daughter, Justine, to bring the new version to the screen.

You all laughed when I wore that novelty dreadlock hat to my headshot sitting. But I knew a day like this would come. Who’s laughing now, batty bwoy? (Variety)
