THR looks back at the 2000 Dennis Quaid-Jim Caviezel thriller to see what changes The CW made to the story for its new drama series.
Even the most passionate fans of the 2000 film Frequency will find something to be surprised by in The CW’s upcoming remake.
The freshman drama series, premiering in October, is based on the movie of the same name that follows Detective John Sullivan (Jim Caviezel) as he discovers he can talk to his deceased father Frank Sullivan (Dennis Quaid) via ham radio. Together, although separated by 20 years, they forge a new connection and solve a serial murder case. But The CW series is putting a fresh spin on the old movie by gender-bending the lead role. Peyton List (Mad Men) is taking on Caviezel’s part, turning NYPD Detective John Sullivan into NYPD Detective Raimy Sullivan.
But that’s not the only change The CW is making as Frequencyheads to the small screen. The Hollywood Reporter took a closer closer look at all the differences between the series premiere and the movie (note: ending spoilers are not included).
