The brilliant thriller The Secret In Their Eyes is getting a US remake - and Julia Roberts has just jumped aboard...

Comfortably one of the best thrillers we've seen in the last five years is Juan Jose Campanella's The Secret In Their Eyes, a a quite brilliant piece of work about a retired attorney writing a book, and dealing with an unsolved case.

The film picked up an Oscar, and deservedly so, but now the Argentinian thriller is getting an English language remake, known as Secret In Their Eyes. But there may not be cause for panic, for the remake is in the hands of Billy Ray, the man responsible for the excellent Shattered Glass and Breach.

Furthermore, we now learn that Julia Roberts is taking one of the lead roles. She joins a cast that already includes Gwyneth Paltrow and Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Production can't be too far off from starting, and we'll keep you posted as we hear more.
