An insurance investigator (Guy Pearce) loses his short-term memory when he sustains a head injury during his wife's murder. He can now remember things only through notes, photographs, or writing them on his body. As he tries to track down his wife's killer despite his handicap, the movie's story moves backward in time to retrace his steps with him.
Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi's AMBI Pictures will finance and produce a remake of Christopher Nolan's iconic, twist-laden film Memento. Writer/director Christopher Nolan adapted Memento from a short story by his brother Jonathan Nolan titled "Memento Mori", and the unusual, neo-noir psychological thriller took audiences by storm upon release in 2000 and has since achieved cult hit status with a fervent following. The film was a box office success and received numerous accolades, including Academy Award nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Film Editing.
Starring Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Joe Pantoliano, Memento was lauded for its nonlinear narrative structure and motifs of memory, perception, grief, and self-deception. AMBI took ownership of Memento remake rights when the company acquired the Exclusive Media Group film library, which housed Memento, as well as 400 additional critical hits, commercial blockbusters and cult favorites such as Begin Again, Cruel Intentions, Donnie Darko, End of Watch, The Ides of March, Hit and Run, The Mexican, Parkland, Rush, Sliding Doors, Snitch, Undefeated and The Way Back, to name a few.Read More
