Even though his latest film for Summit Entertainment, Sinister, is still forthcoming, that isn’t stopping The Exorcism of Emily Rose director Scott Derrickson from lining up his next project, a remake of the foreign horror flick from the Netherlands Two Eyes Staring (aka Zwart Water).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Summit Entertainment has come aboard to remake the Dutch horror thriller with Charlize Theron attached to produce and star. Derrickson will helm the remake from a script he wrote with Emily Rose collaborator Paul Boardman.
Zwart Water centers on a nine-year-old girl who discovers that her new friend is not only sinister but also is her mother’s dead twin. Theron is attached to play the mother, who is not quite right in the head, as they say. The movie, which was released in Europe last year, was re-titled Two Eyes Staring when it hit international circuits, most recently playing at Fantastic Fest in September.
Theron picked up the remake rights last year via her Denver and Delilah Films banner and later tapped Derrickson and Boardman. More soon!
