Washington offered lead in remake of Argentinian thriller.

Twitch is reporting that Denzel Washington has been offered the lead in a remake of the 2010 Argentinian thriller ‘The Secret In Their Eyes.’

The Oscar-winning original, directed by Juan Jose Campanella and starring Ricardo Darín, followed a retired legal counselor who writes a novel hoping to find closure for one of his past unresolved homicide cases and for his unreciprocated love with his superior – both of which still haunt him decades later.

‘Breach’ and ‘Shattered Glass’ helmer Billy Ray is attached to write and direct.
