Kimberly Peirce Has A Friend Like Harry

Kimberly Peirce Has A Friend Like Harry

Director Kimberly Peirce is hard at work turning Chloe Moretz into our generation’s Carrie White, but that isn’t stopping her from looking ahead to other gigs. She’s now attached to the long-gestating remake of French thriller Harry, He’s Here To Help.

The original, directed by Dominik Moll, saw Laurent Lucas and Mathilde Seigner who meet up by chance with an old school acquaintance (Sergei Lopez). But while everyone is initially pleased to reconnect, Harry proves to have less positive motives lurking under his friendly exterior. A big success in France, the movie nabbed multiple Cesar Awards in 2001 and was nominated for the Palme D’Or at the 2000 Cannes festival.

A remake called With A Friend Like Harry has been bubbling away for a few years now, with Wes Craven attached at one point. Now Maven pictures – run by Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray – is looking to finally get it on screens, with Stoker’s Wentworth Miller writing the script.

Peirce’s Carrie will be out on April 12 next year.
