J.A. Bayona’s original film The Orphange rattled the bones of many a viewer with its creepy atmosphere and top notch scares. You know what that means, right? Two words — AMERICAN REMAKE! Though we have to say we’re pretty stoked as to the choice of the director for this undertaking.
THR reports that actor-producer-director Larry Fessenden has signed on to helm The Orphanage, New Line’s remake of the Guillermo del Toro-produced Spanish-language horror movie.
Fessenden also has written the script with del Toro, who is producing the new film with Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilm. Sounds all aces thus far. Now let’s just hope Larry can resist the urge to somehow slap a Wendigo into this film.
