Juliette Lewis has revealed she's hoping to remake the "beautiful" Fellini film Nights Of Cabiria.

The 1957 movie centres around a prostitute in Rome who is looking for love but finds heartbreak instead.

Juliette told Collider she is keen to star in a reboot of the film, which she's been trying to get made for a decade.

"It has all those elements of heartbreak and poetry and magic, but it tells the tale of this downtrodden prostitute, who's not really meant to be a prostitute," she said of the tale.

"She's not any good at it. And, she lives in her head, searching for love. It's so beautiful... It's called The Days Of Mary."

The actress - who is currently starring as receptionist Tammy Hemphill in US TV thriller The Firm - continued: "I tried to get the rights (to Nights Of Cabiria) 10 years ago and I didn't, and then this came my way. If it's written in the stars, it will happen. I like things where characters are imploding."
