The rights to remake the 1952 western classic High Noon were purchased earlier this week by producer Mark Headley, actor Christopher Mitchum and their business partner Toni Covington. The trio is operating under the umbrella of High Noon Productions. The group purchased the rights from Karen Sharp Kramer, the widow of the original’s producer, Stanley Kramer.
The purchase was made Monday at the American Film Market event in Santa Monica. Currently High Noon Productions is looking for a director and a star for the picture. With the deal being made after the Writers’ Guild strike started, no scripter has been hired for the project.
