MV: I just saw this great news, from http://www.imdb.com/news/ni0592587/, (even though it was written a few months ago) that The Message is being re-made.
…Now the film’s producer, Oscar Zoghbi, has revealed plans to revamp the 1976 movie and give it a modern twist.
He is looking to shoot the remake, titled The Messenger of Peace, in the holy cities of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.
But Zoghbi insists he is not trying to cause offence with the film.
He says, “We have only the utmost respect for (the original film) but technology in cinema has advanced since the 1970s. This latest project will employ modern film techniques in its renewal of the first film’s core messages.”
