Sofia Vergara in negotiations for 'Heat' remake

WENN

Sofia Vergara is in talks to join Jason Statham in a planned remake of cult 1986 action thriller "Heat."

Bing: Sofia's wardrobe malfunction

The "Modern Family" star is interested in playing Statham's leading lady as he steps into Burt Reynolds' shoes to take over the role of a recovering gambling addict, who offers his services as a bodyguard-for-hire when a female friend is attacked by the mafia, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Director Simon West has taken over from Brian De Palma as filmmaker of the project, which is based on William Goldman's book of the same name. The author adapted the story for Reynolds' original screenplay and will do so again for the modern-day remake.

Not to be confused with the 1995 film "Heat" that pitted Al Pacino against DeNiro.  (That was a great film btw and no need for a remake).

I have a basic dislike for "remakes" in any form.  Certainly there are enough creative people and minds in Hollywood they should be able to come up with original ideas rather than recycling

already tired stuff constantly.

Please don't make a remake of this movie.  The original was perfect.  How could any remake entertain us?

SAD...She has time for movies and TV Yet can't seem to find time to carry her own child. She will instead allow a surrogant to do that for her because "she doesnt have time to deal with pregnancy right now". I assume she also won't have time to raise the child either :( Truly sad!!!
