AceShowbiz – Julie Andrews will step behind the camera to executive produce a remake of her late husband Blake Edwards‘ hit 1979 movie “10“.
The 84-year-old actress will work on the new version of the film, a Hollywood composer going through a mid-life crisis who becomes infatuated with a newly married woman, which she starred in alongside Dudley Moore and Bo Derek.
The new version will take a comedic look at the question of what defines a “perfect 10” in today’s world, reported Deadline.
Karen McCullah and Kirsten ‘Kiwi’ Smith will write the script, with Sue Kroll, Jeff Nathanson, and Ashok Amritraj also producing.
“10 holds a special place in my heart. It captures Blake’s charisma and his special humor that I so adore,” Julie shared in a statement.
“I have long been rather protective about which of Blake’s brilliant works should be re-imagined. I am pleased that today’s film goers will have an opportunity to enjoy a new interpretation of this classic.”
Further details surrounding the production remain unknown.
