Kandidaten becomes The Candidate

About a year after I blogged about the Danish noir film Kandidaten, an American remake has been announced. From Variety:
Sam Worthington will star in Summit Entertainment's remake of Danish thriller "The Candidate," with Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen producing through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner.

Beau Willimon will pen the adaptation, which follows an aspiring lawyer who wakes up in a hotel room with scant memories of the woman he met the night before, only to discover she's dead in the bathroom -- and he's about to be blackmailed for her murder.

Sounds a bit like a (not terribly good) film of many years ago with Jane Fonda and (?) Jeff Bridges. Jane Fonda wakes up under similar circumstances, that's about all I can remember...I think it was called The Morning After.
