Showtime has released the first teaser for its forthcoming TV remake of Paul Schrader’s 1980 neo-noir film American Gigolo.
The American Gigolo teaser, which you can check out below, features Jon Bernthal as he takes on the role of Julian Kaye, a high-priced escort previously portrayed by Richard Gere. Showtime’s American Gigolo is a present-day reimagining of the iconic 1980 film.
Executive producers are original film producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, and KristieAnne Reed, with Bernthal set as a producer.
American Gigolo was originally developed by David Hollander but left the project last April following his misconduct allegations.
