"Original story telling"... something your remake automatically cannot boast.

The original is one of the best crime stories ever in my personal opinion. I think transposing to the States would be interesting because they would have an opportunity to talk about the U.S. penal system i.e. the abhorent 'three strikes' rule that can see a man go to prison for life for stealing a loaf of bread if he has two priors, or the fact that prisoners in the U.S. are essentially a slave labour force. This could be even more incendiary than the French original!

A Prophet is one of my favourite films of the last few years, I think a remake could work as long as the the lead is mixed raced and with maybe De Niro in the Cesar role.

Oh dear, another absolutely pointless remake. The original more than likely will not be improved upon.
