Sleuth Up

Via Ken Levine's blog, I see that Jude Law and Michael Caine will star opposite one another in a new film adaptation of Anthony Shaffer's Sleuth. Caine, of course, starred in the original film adaptation of the play, back in 1972, opposite Laurence Olivier. This time around, Caine will play the part originally played by Olivier; Law, as he is wont to do, will play Caine's original part. I think I'd like to see this become an ongoing project, along the lines of Michael Apted's Up documentaries. Every thirty-five years, a new version of Sleuth will be made, with the younger actor from the previous version taking on the role of the older character.

Law, incidentally, was born the same year the original version was released. Will one of this year's crop of celebrity babies be ready to step into Jude Law's shoes in 2043? Liam Aaron McDermott? River Russell Deary? Alexander Pete Schreiber? The world breathlessly awaits.
