How's this for A-List? Martin Scorsese is producing a David Mamet-scripted, Mike-Nichols-directed remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1963 thriller High and Low. Scorsese has long wanted to remake the film, which is based on an American novel and tells the story of a businessman who mortgages everything he owns in order to rescue his kidnapped son—only to learn that the hostage is, in fact, his driver's son. He must then decide whether or not he should sacrifice everything for another man's child. In addition to this project, DreamWorks is developing a new version of Kurosawa’s Ikiru, while the Weinstein Company is considering a remake of The Seven Samurai.
