LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Hollywood is planning remakes of two films by slain Dutch director Theo Van Gogh, "Blind Date and "Interview."

Tony Shalhoub and Patricia Clarkson will star in Stanley Tucci's "Blind Date" as a couple trying to repair their shattered lives and relationship after the death of their child, The Hollywood Reporter said Saturday.

Steve Buscemi will direct "Interview" and play a faltering political journalist reduced to interviewing one of the country's top soap opera actresses portrayed by Sienna Miller.

Van Gogh was killed in Amsterdam in November 2004. Mohammed Bouyeri confessed to the murder and is serving life in prison.
