Mickey Rourke to star in Mona Lisa rehash

'It's a diabolical liberty', Part III

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Evidently not satisfied with taking a hatchet to Get Carter and The Long Good Friday, Hollywood has now decided Neil Jordan's 1986 gangster film Mona Lisa would benefit from a rehash starring Mickey Rourke.

According to Variety, Handmade Films is the guilty party producing the reinvention, which will see Rourke playing "an ex-con who takes a job as a chauffeur for a high-class escort".

Larry Clark of Kids and Wassup Rockers fame will write and direct the production, slated to start filming in New York in July.

The only positive note in this truly chilling news is that Bond minx Eva Green is in "advanced negotiations" to appear opposite Rourke. The pair will take the roles originally interpreted by Cathy Tyson and Bob "Diabolical Liberty" Hoskins. ®
