Plot Summary:

Director Stephen Frears, writer Peter Prince and producer Jeremy Thomas are reuniting to remake their 1984 film, "The Hit." In the original, Terence Stamp plays Willie, a gangster's henchman turned "supergrass" (informer) trying to live in peaceful hiding in a remote Spanish village. Sun-dappled bliss turns to nerve-racking suspense, however, when two hit men--played by a soulless John Hurt and a youthful, loose-cannon Tim Roth--come a-calling to bring Willie back for execution. The remake moves the action to Mexico and the U.S.
