New, 47 comments

Memento has not been forgotten.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, AMBI Pictures announced today that they would be financing and producing the remake. The company secured the rights to the movie after acquiring Exclusive Media Group, which also gives them the rights to films like Donnie Darko and Cruel Intentions.

Nolan's Memento, released in 2000, was the director's first step into mainstream recognition. The film starred Guy Pearce alongside Carrie-Anne Moss and followed one man's journey to learn what's happened to him after a powerful bout of amnesia.

There's currently no word on whether or not Nolan will have anything to do with the remake, but chances are he probably won't.

The director is currently working on an untitled project that's due out in 2017.
