Though it was only made a few years ago, the Norwegian found footage flick Troll Hunter has already found itself on the remake chopping block. So goes it in Hollywood. But we think you’ll be pleased with the man in charge of the project.
As reported by Deadline, Neil Marshall will be rewriting and directing the remake, which is looking to begin production in early 2014. Currently shooting an episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” in Ireland, Marshall will begin work on the film as soon he returns. The writer/director of films like Dog Soldiers and The Descent will be taking over from an earlier draft of the screenplay written by Marc Haimes.
The film is being produced by 1492′s Christopher Columbus and Michael Barnathan and CJ Entertainment, along with the film’s original producers John Jacobsen and Sveinung Golimo.
The André Øvredal-directed 2010 Norwegian original Troll Hunter focused on a group of students investigating a series of mysterious bear killings. They follow a mysterious hunter into the deep woods, learning along the way that he is a troll hunter and that the creatures killing those bears might not confine their appetites to that species only.
