Mike Nichols of Working Girl and Closer fame has signed on to direct the remake of the 1962 detective thriller High and Low for Miramax.
Martin Scorsese will executive produce the film. Scorsese has actually been interested in the project for years, having dispatched playwright David Mamet to write the screenplay in 1999. The film follows a ruined businessman who pays a ransom to kidnappers over his driver's abducted son. The original was made by famed Japanese director Akira Kurosawa.
