Desperate Hours (1990): Cimino’s Remake of Wyler’s Film, Starring Anthony Hopkins and Mickey Rourke

In 1990, Michael Cimino directed a remake of the William Wyler-Humphrey Bogart 1956 film The Desperate Hours, starring Anthony Hopkins and Mickey Rourke.

Often collaborating with Cimino, Rourke had previously appeared in Heaven’s Gate and Year of the Dragon.

The film proved yet another box office disappointment for Cimino, grossing less than $3 million.
