23 years later, Production Weekly's Twitter feed reports that the film is getting a remake. Mickey Rourke will add another film to his ever-increasing roster and star alongside the radiant Eva Green. That should throw the whole relationship into another dynamic. Hoskins might be able to show the toughness, but he's no ex-wrestler and tough guy of Sin City. The big kicker, however, is the director. Larry Clark, helmer of Kids and Bully, will grab the directorial chair.
I think it's safe to say that this will be his first big production since Bully, but the bigger question: Will the new Mona Lisa have Clarke's trademark sexual shocks (Kids, Ken Park), and is that something you want to see in the world created by Neil Jordan and David Leland? Or does the remake world not matter when Green is sliding into another sexy role?
