The original film came out in 1968 & was directed by Norman Jewison. It followed businessman / millionaire playboy Thomas Crown, played by Steve McQueen, who gets his kicks by robbing banks. An insurance investigator, Vicki Anderson, played by Faye Dunaway begins to track him down and the two have an affair, even while he plans another heist. It was nominated for two Academy Awards, winning 1 for best original song for “Windmills of Your Mind”. It was remade in 1999 with Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. The original film ended with the couple splitting up while the remake had a happier ending.
Jordan reportedly came up with the idea of the remake and has pitched it to MGM. The original is one of my favorite movies ever & while I wasn’t a fan of the remake, I’m very interested in see what Jordan will bring to the table.
