Nothing is sacred. In 2012, the British magazine Sight & Sound voted the best film in the world, Vertigo – the red tear, is going to be remade.

Deadline has reported how Steven Knight, known from the See and Peaky Blinders series, is writing a new version of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958). According to preliminary information, Robert Downey Jr. will play a traumatized police officer in the new film. In the original Vertigo, James Stewart was famously seen in the role.

To be precise, Vertigo is no longer the best film in the world according to Sight & Sound. The vote, which is organized every 10 years, was won last year by Jeanne Dielman (1975), who famously gathered only two viewers in Finland during her publication week:

The world’s best film only got two viewers in Finnish cinemas

Vertigo can be rented and bought digitally in Finland, at the cheapest price for a couple of euros, but the film cannot be found on monthly paid streaming services.

“A fateful thriller about a private detective who falls in love with the woman he is shadowing, ranked among the best films of Alfred Hitchcock’s production and film history. In the story set in San Francisco, James Stewart plays a detective with a fear of high places who is hired by a friend to spy on his suicidal wife. When Stewart saves a woman from drowning in a bay, he discovers that he is obsessed with a troubled and beautiful woman.”
