CAPRICORN ONE Remake Gets A Director

John Moore has been given the assignment of bringing a new version of the 1978 thriller Capricorn One to the big screen. Moore will be working from a script by Peter Buchman, who recently penned Steven Soderbergh’s two-part, four-hour Che.

The original film centered on a manned mission to Mars which is faked by NASA in order to keep its governmental funding and starred James Brolin, Hal Holbrook, Elliot Gould, Telly Savalis and a pre-murdering O. J. Simpson. Despite some heavy duty acting power, not including Simpson, the film fell flat for many audiences. Hopefully, this new version will take the original’s premise and improve on the execution.
