Oscar nominee "Alzheimer" ripe for re-make

Belgium's hit thriller "De Zaak Alzheimer/the Alzheimer Case" is being prepared for a re-make in the US prior to the film's release there. Written by Erik Van Looy and Carl Joos (on a novel by Jef Geeraerts), the Flemish-language film tells the tale of two Antwerp cops on the trail of a killer with memory problems. The film has been seen by 750,000 people since October and won 4 times at Belgium's annual movie awards.

It is Belgium's nomination for a foreign-language Oscar. This means it is up against movies such as "Les choristes/The Chorus", "Kontroll", "Downfall" and "The Sea Inside".
