Brad Anderson (Homicide: Life on the Streets) has agreed to direct the remake of Hans Weingartner's political German film The Edukators.

The story centers on three youths whose concern over global capitalism leads them from acts of protest to serious crime, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The original, released domestically last summer by IFC Films, won top honors at the German Critics Film Awards and top honors at several European film festivals. No production schedule has been set for the remake of The Edukators.
