Denzel Washington and Spike Lee to Remake Kurosawa’s “High and Low”

Legendary actor Denzel Washington and acclaimed director Spike Lee are set to team up once again for a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1963 crime thriller “High and Low.” This exciting project will mark the duo’s first collaboration since the 2006 film “Inside Man.”

The remake is being produced in collaboration with Apple Original Films and A24, with plans to release the film in theaters first before making it available globally on Apple TV+. The project is set to begin production in March and will be co-written by Alan Fox and Spike Lee, with production handled by Todd Black and Jason Michael Berman for Escape Artists and Mandalay Pictures.

“High and Low” is adapted from Ed McBain’s novel “King’s Ransom” and centers around a board member of a Japanese company, portrayed by Toshiro Mifune in the original film, who is faced with a difficult decision involving his vast fortune and the kidnapping of his child by ruthless criminals.

This upcoming remake is sure to be an eagerly anticipated project, especially considering the successful history of collaborations between Denzel Washington and Spike Lee, which includes iconic films such as “Mo’ Better Blues”, “Malcolm X”, and “He Got Game.”

Fans of both Kurosawa’s original masterpiece and the previous collaborations between Washington and Lee can look forward to a fresh and gripping reinterpretation of this classic crime thriller.
