Grease director Randal Kleiser is behind plans to remake the classic courtroom drama 12 Angry Men - but with an all-female jury, according to reports in Cannes.

Daryl Hannah and Grease star Olivia Newton-John are some of the names being mentioned for 12 Angry Women, which is set to start filming this year.

The original 1957 film starred Henry Fonda and Lee Cobb and was nominated for Best Picture, but lost out to The Bridge on the River Kwai.

American filmmaker Randal made his directorial debut with Grease, which also stars John Travolta.

He has previously revealed he isn't keen on remaking the hit 1978 musical movie.
