Sleeping with the Enemy Remake Is Happening with Little Woods Director

Sleeping with the Enemy Remake Is Happening with Little Woods Director

Apparently there will always be movies to remake, even as we start to enter an era when everything has already been remade. Next up for a redo is the Julia Roberts 1991 thriller Sleeping with the Enemy, which was a modest hit and followed in the wake of Pretty Woman. It will be reimagined for modern audiences.

UK producer Damian Jones is behind this new iteration. The original followed an abused woman named Laura Burney. After faking her death in order to flee from her violent husband, Martin (Patrick Bergin), Laura (Julia Roberts) leaves Cape Cod and moves to Iowa, where she adopts a new identity and starts dating a local teacher, Ben Woodward (Kevin Anderson). Martin, meanwhile, unearths evidence suggesting that she isn't dead, and when her mother confirms this, he tracks her to Iowa. He finds Laura and Ben and confronts them, forcing her to fight for her life once again.
