Even though we haven’t heard a damn thing about it in quite some time, Screen Daily is reporting that Spain’s Rodar y Rodar Films has just announced its slate of upcoming films, which includes the remake of The Orphanage.
The site reports that a “new international version of ‘The Orphanage’ from JA Bayona” is on its way along with remakes of Guillem Morales’ Julia’s Eyes and The Uninvited Guest as well as a remake of Oriol Paulo’s The Body. It’s like Rodar y Rodar’s way of saying to the world, “If you missed it in Spanish, you’re getting it in English!” No word on if Bayona will be directing the remake. Our guess is he’ll serve as producer, etc. After all, here in America we love to give remake jobs to music video directors. That’s like our thing.
In other new movie news, Rodar y Rodar also announced The Body director Oriol Paulo’s A Hollow Man, which “is a thriller set in a small village in which unexplainable crimes occur,” and The Sign, “a psychological thriller about a woman who tries to escape a past crime.” They are both due to come out in 2016 (with English language remakes no doubt to follow).
