Whilst some classic movies being remade is of no surprise, there is, every now and again, one that will take you by surprise. The latest to be added to the remake trend is Indecent Proposal from Paramount Players.
To give the remake that modern-day edge, The Girl on the Train scribe Erin Cressida Wilson has been set to re-write the original script. As it’s very early days of development, no other information is available at this time.
The original was released in 1993 and was an adaptation of Jack Engelhard’s novel. It was directed by Adrian Lyne and starred Robert Redford, Demi Moore and Woody Harrelson. The story follows David (Harrelson) and Diana Murphy (Moore), a loving couple with a bright future. David is a talented architect; Diana is a top-notch real estate agent. But when the recession hits, their finances take a nosedive. In a last-ditch effort to save their dream home, they head to Las Vegas to win their mortgage money gambling. After they lose everything, a mysterious billionaire (Robert Redford) offers the solution to their money problems: $1 million — if he can sleep with Diana.

Cressida Wilson is certainly keeping herself busy. She was recently taken on by Disney to pen their live-action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; she is also working on a screenplay for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin. Her previous work has included the Emily Blunt led The Girl on the Train as well as the Nicole Kidman drama Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus.
