Though no US distro has been secured yet for the original film from the Netherlands, Elbert van Strien’s Two Eyes Staring (or Zwart Water for you purists out there), that hasn’t stopped a Hollywood heavyweight from nailing down the rights to the remake!
According to The Hollywood Reporter Oscar winner Charlize Theron has proffered a Dutch wink to remake rights to writer/director Elbert van Strien’s Two Eyes Staring, a movie originally named “Zwart Water” in the Netherlands. Theron snapped up remake rights through her production banner Denver & Delilah and is, according to Dutch sources, meeting “A-list directors” to attach to the remake.
The original film follows nine-year-old Lisa, who discovers her sinister new friend is the ghost of the dead twin of Lisa’s mother. Lisa’s father also begins to suspect his wife of hiding a terrible secret, resulting in deadly consequences.
