The CW has picked up an update of the action-thriller La Femme Nikita, says The Hollywood Reporter.
McG (Terminator Salvation, “Human Target”) will executive produce the remake, along with Peter Johnson from Warner Bros. and Wonderland Productions.
Luc Besson’s French film was released in 1990, then was remade in 1993 as the English-language Point of No Return, starring Bridget Fonda. It was turned into a TV series by USA Network in 1997.
In this version, Nikita goes rogue and a new assassin is trained to replace her.
