Vertigo Gets The Remake Treatment At Paramount (With Robert Downey Jr. As Lead?)

l intro 1679605277

The outlet reports that Robert Downey Jr. is circling the lead role populated by James Stewart in the original Alfred Hitchcock venture. It remains to be seen how faithful the remake is to the original, which was about a retired detective-turned-private detective suffering from acrophobia, who gets roped into tracking his friend’s wife.

Downey Jr. is said to be closely attached to the film, producing it under his Team Downey banner. The production company, founded by Downey Jr. and his wife Susan, most recently produced the 2020 “Dolittle” film, the actor’s first major role following his Iron Man retirement. The actor is next set to star in Christopher Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” and Park Chan-wook’s upcoming “The Sympathizer” series.

“Vertigo” is just the most recent Alfred Hitchock flick to get the remake treatment. Ben Wheatley directed Armie Hammer and Lily James in Netflix’s 2020 adaptation of “Rebecca,” which Hitchock first brought to the big screen in 1940.

The upcoming “Vertigo” remake hasn’t been dated.
