48 Hours — remake (D: Safdie Brothers)

Benny and Josh Safdie, the brother filmmaking team behind the Robert Pattinson crime thriller Good Time, will tackle the remake of 48 Hours for Paramount Players.

Chernin Entertainment, the production outfit behind the Planet of the Apes franchise reboot is producing with Safdie collaborators Oscar Boyson and Sebastian Bear-McClard.

48 Hours was one of the movies that helped launch the big-screen career of Eddie Murphy as well as the buddy cop genre. Murphy and Nick Nolte starred as a convict and cop, respectively, who must team up to catch a pair of cop killers within 48 hours.

An early Joel Silver production, the movie was directed by Walter Hill, whose credits include The Warriors, Steve McQueen's The Getaway and Arnold Schwarzenegger's Red Heat, and who brought a gritty sensibility to the proceedings.

As with Good Time, Josh Safdie will handle script duties on top of directing and will co-write the script with Ronald Bronstein, who co-wrote Good Time. New to the equation will be Jerrod Carmichael, the comedian who starred in and co-created the NBC comedy The Carmichael Show.

Good Time has brought acclaim to the Safdies and has been nominated for several Independent Spirit Awards. The brothers were nominated for a Palm d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, where the movie premiered and won an award for its score.

The duo is repped by WME.

I had not realized that the head of Paramount Players is Eric from Head of the Class.

Brian Robbins? He was a director for years.
