The CW Network appears to be getting into the remake business like other networks having launched new versions of Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place in recent years. Now they are looking to launch a new version of another series- La Femme Nikita. This series which aired in the 90s and starred Peta Wilson was actually a Canadian production (CTV) but also aired on USA Network in the US. The series was actually based on a 1990 French film called Nikita.

The 2010 version of Nikita will feature Maggie Q (Mission: Impossible III) in the title role of Nikita. Shane West has been cast in the role of Michael.

Another recent show (the original debut in 1997) being remade by CW. This one might do well as this network is all about the youth and the younger generation will probably remember the original series. The original ended its run in 2001, just 9 years ago which is too soon IMO for a remake but hey what do I know?!
