According to Variety the director of Wanted, Timur Bekmambetov, is in talks with Universal to make an English Language remake of Black Lightning, a Russian film he co-produced. Bekmambetov will most likely be in the director’s chair this time round for the English language version.

The film is about a student who is given an old Soviet car that happens to be able to fly and he uses the car to help him fight crime. The original film was a big hit and I would imagine an English language remake is an easy pitch to Universal.

You can check out the trailer for the original below (which is fansubbed in English) to give you an idea of what to expect from the remake and also hopefully encourage you to check out the original, if you haven’t already.
