Kenneth Branagh will direct the remake of SLEUTH featuring fellow British stars Jude Law and Michael Caine. This is the second time Anthony Shaffer's play is getting made into a movie and the second time Caine is playing a major role in the drama that revolves around two men vying for the same woman. This time around, Caine will play a brilliant writer and social fixture who's so upset at losing his wife to a young hairdresser (Law) that he hatches a complex revenge plan. Caine played the hairdresser in the original and SIR Laurence Olivier played the writer. Both actors received Oscar nominations for the 1972 film, along with director JOSEPH MANKIEWICZ. Law is stepping into a screen role originally played by Caine for the second time, after also starring in the remake of ALFIE.
