According to Variety, EuropaCorp, the firm Besson runs with Pierre-Ange Le Pogam, is nearing an agreement with two major US studios to have an English-language remake in production by the end of the year.
Tell No One, which was adapted from Harlan Coben's novel by French filmmaker Guillaume Canet in 2006, stars François Cluzet as a doctor who discovers that his wife, thought to be murdered eight years ago, may still be alive.
The movie grossed more than $17 million in its first month on release in France and recently crossed the $6 million mark in the US. Tell No One was also a hit when it was released in the UK in summer 2007.
EuropaCorp is also in negotiations with a US studio to remake action movie District B13, about a cop and ex-crook attempting to diffuse a neutron bomb in Paris.
