Timur Bekmambetov is lining up to direct a U.S. remake of this Russian-language blockbuster he produced last year. It's easy to see why: Aside from the subtitles and the Cyrillic script over everything, this is as Hollywood as 'Spider-Man'
But that's the biggest risk for the upcoming remake, because it shares more than just a sense of scale with that origin story. Our Peter Parker, Dima (Grigoriy Dobrygin), is a typical Muscovite teen, enrolled at the university and daydreaming about the new girl in his class. For his birthday, his dad buys him a car, but it's not the souped-up Mercedes he'd been hoping for. Instead, it's a beat-up old Volga that he's embarrassed to take anywhere.
