With shooting under way on Eric Valette’s redo of the Takashi Miike horror hit One Missed Call, what better time to announce who will actually be starring in it, eh? Nothing like last minute!
Variety is reporting that Ed Burns has taken the role of a detective investigating a series of deaths surrounding a college girl, who will be played by Shannyn Sossamon (pictured). Her friends start getting phone calls from themselves three days in the future, screaming in agony. Three days later said friends are dead. Could it all be an elaborate prank, or is something more sinister at work?
To learn more about what we can expect from the remake, check out Bloody Disgusting’s brief chat with screenwriter Andrew Klavan right here. I just hope the skills Valette showed with his first film, Malifique, help elevate the material past the Miike original, which, while entertaining, was about as cookie-cutter as they come.
