I’m hit or miss with remakes. But, if you’re going to gender-swap Jeremy Irons for Rachel Weisz in a remake of David Cronenberg’s 1988 creepysexweird thriller Dead Ringers, well, I’m in.
Insert a long, slow wolf whistle here.
No matter how long it is between projects, it’s impossible to forget how awesome Rachel Weisz is. This looks like it’s going to be a fantastic showcase of all of her talents, and a reminder that she’s still a super sexy lady even though she’s entered the dreaded “Nobody In Hollywood Knows What To Do With Me” age that somehow only applies to women.
The directing team for the six-episode series includes Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene, The Nest, The Iron Claw) Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body, Girlfight), Karena Evans (P-Valley, Snowfall), and Lauren Wolkstein (A Friend of the Family, Y: The Last Man).
Here are a couple of pieces of the very vulvic key art as a bonus.
Dead Ringers premieres on Amazon Prime on April 21st.
