Diane Lane Will Star In And Produce BRAINSTORM Remake

DianeLane

Actress Diane Lane is adding a producer hyphenate to her resume, as she will starring and producing a remake of the 1983 science-fiction thriller Brainstorm for Warner Brothers.

The story centers on a group of scientists led by Christopher Walken who discover a way to record a person’s memories and play them back into another person’s brain. Things take a turn for the worse when they discover that the militray is looking at seizing the technology for their own purposes.

The film was directed special effects wizard Douglas Trumbull as a follow up to his debut feature Silent Running. No writer for this new version has been picked yet.

The original film is ripe for a remake if only because the tragic drowning death of co-star Natalie Wood during production forced a series of rewrites and reshoots which ultimately hurt the final product. The film’s central conceit is interesting and hasn’t really been explored much since, so there is plenty of fertile ground for the remake to cover.
