Movie bosses have announced plans to make a hip-hop remake of reggae star Jimmy Cliff's Jamaican movie The Harder They Come.

Where the original 1973 film focused on IVAN MARTIN, a rural Jamaican musician played by Cliff, the new version will centre on an aspiring performer who attempts to break into the New York rap scene.

The movie is scheduled to begin production in the autumn (04).
