According to Variety, Abel Ferrara is re-imagining Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Titled simply Jekyll and Hyde the film will star Forest Whitaker and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson in the main roles.

Not much is known about how much Ferrara will change the story, but it seems like it will follow a doctor with a vicious alter ego.

The movie is being produced by Glasshouse Pictures. The film will start shooting later this summer.

"The combination of such formidable talent in front of and behind the camera will turn this wonderful gothic story into a modern classic for a whole new generation," said Glasshouse producer Luc Roeg.
