Ghost Being Remade for Japanese Audiences

Ghost Being Remade for Japanese AudiencesStop the friggin' presses! Yes, you read that right! In a stunning turn of events an American supernatural themed love story involving a restless spirit is being remade for Japan! Not the other way around! I'm dizzy. Really, I may faint. Somebody hold me.

According to Variety veteran horror filmmaker Takashi Ichise (the Ju-On/Grudge franchise) will be producing an Asian remake of director Jerry Zucker's 1990 hit Ghost called Love and Soul with director Taro Ohtani at the helm.

"Love and Soul stars Korean Wave actor Song Seung-hun and Japanese actress Nanako Matsushima in the roles played by Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, respectively. Lensing wrapped at the end of July, and the pic will be released in November in Japan and Korea."

So what does that mean for us? Honestly not a hell of a lot, and we probably will never mention this flick again around these parts ... unless of course things take a frightening turn and long black hair somehow gets mixed in with all of that sensual pottery making!
