- Hunnmam take Steve McQueen's role ( a man unjustly convicted of murder in 1930s France and condemned to life in a South American prison)
- movie is based on book "Papillon"(1969) wrote by Henri Charrière
- The 1973 original "Papillion" stars Steve McQueen as Henri "Papillon" Charrière and Dustin Hoffman as Louis Dega
Original version is one of my fav. McQueen movie and i don't need a flop remake. I can't imagine how Hunnam would replace McQueen.
