The 2005 Spanish-Argetine was original took place in Madrid, and was written and directed by Marcos Carnevale, featuring China Zorrilla and Manuel Alexandre - and took in a huge take at the Argentinian box office.
"I am thrilled to be working with two of the greatest screen actors in the history of cinema," Radford said in a statement. "My aim is to do justice to this great movie and bring it to the wider public it deserves."
A release date for ELSA & FRED has not yet been set.
