State Of The Union gets remake

Spencer Tracy film State Of The Union is set to be remade.

The movie - based on the political play by Pulitzer Prize-winners Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse - was released in 1948 and also starred Katharine Hepburn and Angela Lansbury.

Variety has reported that Identity Films and Flat Penny Films are working on a new feature version of the drama.

Spencer played a Republican hopeful running for president, with Angela as a newspaper magnate backing him. Katharine co-starred as the estranged wife of Spencer's character.

The producers are currently seeking writers for the film.
