The Guardian News: Chiwetel Ejiofor and Julia Roberts in first trailer for Secret in Their Eyes remake
A star-studded remake of the Oscar-winning Argentinian thriller, also starring Nicole Kidman, has Roberts out for revenge against the man who killed her daughter.
Given the near universal acclaim that met Juan José Campanella’s 2009 thriller The Secret in Their Eyes, initial reaction to news of a remake was less than enthused. But with a stellar cast and Billy Ray, the director of Shattered Glass and Breach, on board, it might not be the disaster that many expected. The first trailer for the remake has landed and has Chiwetel Ejiofor and Julia Roberts as FBI investigators working with their DA supervisor, played by Nicole Kidman.But after the daughter of Roberts’ character gets killed, their lives are torn apart. Like the original, there’s a narrative that alternates between past and present, 13 years after the murder, as the three still try to find justice.
