The original, which starred Connie Nielson, Ulrich Thomsen and Nikolaj Lie Kaas, came out in 2004 and centered on a man who is sent to Afghanistan on a UN mission, and his black-sheep brother who becomes the caretaker for his brother's wife and child. If the negotiations work out, Maguire will play the military brother, and Gyllenhaal will be the one who takes over the familial duties. The original won a number of accolades including a number of audience awards from festivals like Boston, Creteil, and Sundance. David Benioff (Troy and Wolverine) is adapting the film, and the plan is to begin shooting it in the beginning of November. While foreign remakes are so darned overdone, it'll be interesting to see Maguire and Gyllenhaal play off each other. Are you ready for a little Jake and Tobey?
