Alexander Payne Takes On Reimagining Of ‘Babette’s Feast’

I hear “remake” and see a beloved film, and I automatically sink a bit. Babette’s Feast is a wonderful movie that needs no reworking. However, the story itself is rich enough to be transplantable.

Coming off of the very strong The Irishman, Scorsese is ready to film another movie about the killing of some Native Americans.

Trailers that caught my eye:

And…nothing else. Nothing caught my eye for trailers.
