Apparently MGM has been developing a remake of Robert Mandel’s classsic 1986 thriller F/X for quite some time now. According to Moviehole.net, the hold up is being blamed on the screenplay, which has already gone through its fair share of writers. It’s still way down the pipleline. In the original, which spawned a sequel and short-lived TV series, Australia’s Bryan Brown plays a movie special effects man, Rollie Tyler, who’s hired to fake a real-life mob killing for a witness protection plan, but ultimately finds his own life in danger. Brian Dennehy plays a New York City police detective, Leo McCarthy, who is investigating the sham bump off.
