Schuely prepares 'Metropolis' remake

Producer Thomas Schuely has revealed plans to remake the 1928 Fritz Lang classic Metropolis.

Schuely has told Variety that he is currently looking for a director to take on the film, which he believes has a particular resonance in contemporary society.

He said: "With the overwhelming role technology plays in our daily lives, the growing gap between rich and poor…the story of Metropolis is a frightening reflection of our society that takes place in an all too possible not too distant future."

The original silent movie, which was set in 2027, told the story of a workers' revolution in a world divided into managers and labourers.

The dystopian tale was one of the most expensive films ever when it was made.
