We have learned from Walt Disney Studios that Miramax’s remake of the Israeli thriller The Debt has been slated for an October 1, 2010 release.
In The Debt (rated R by the MPAA for some violence and language), Rachel Singer (Helen Mirren) is one of three Israeli Mossad agents who were sent on a secret mission to capture a notorious Nazi war criminal in 1960’s East Berlin. Now, decades later, she must go back undercover and risk everything once again. The film was directed by John Madden (Shakespeare in Love and Proof) and also stars Tom Wilkinson, Jessica Chastain and Sam Worthington.
The studio, which is still seeking a buyer after recent negotiations with founders Bob and Harvey Weinstein fell apart, will next release The Switch starring Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston on August 20.
