Neil Burger to Direct Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston in ‘Intouchables’ Remake

“Divergent” director Neil Burger has been tapped to direct The Weinstein Company’s remake of “The Intouchables,” starring Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston.

TWC plans to start showing in January. Hart and Cranston, who have not worked together before, came on board the project in March.

The original French movie starred Francois Cluzet and Omar Sy in the story of the friendship that develops between a quadriplegic millionaire and his caregiver. “Intouchables” grossed close to $430 million worldwide in 2011 and TWC picked up remake rights that year as part of a deal to release the original domestically.

The original film was directed by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano.

John Hartmere has written the script for the remake. Burger worked with TWC on “The Illusionist” and also directed “Limitless.”

Burger has been writing the script for Universal’s “Bride of Frankenstein” remake. He’s repped by CAA. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
