BECAUSE THIS IS JUST WRONG;
A remake of the classic British crime film The Long Good Friday is being planned, it has been confirmed.
The 1980 original starred Bob Hoskins as an East End gangster whose criminal empire comes under attack from a wave of mysterious bombings.
Production company Handmade Films said the story would be “refreshed” with a modern setting.
Filming is due to start in Miami in 2008 under the direction of Paul W S Anderson, who made Resident Evil.
