Columbia Has a New Remake Taped

Another remake of a foreign film is on its way from Columbia Pictures, and we have all the details you need right here in case you just don't wanna go looking for the original.

According to Variety, Columbia Pictures has acquired rights to develop the Dutch thriller Taped as an English-language film to be produced by Red Wagon Entertainment's Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher.

The Dutch film follows a young couple vacationing in Buenos Aires who inadvertently tape the murder of an innocent man by a corrupt cop, forcing them to fight for their lives to escape.

NL Films, the Dutch production company behind Taped, will executive produce the remake. "We're huge fans of 'Taped' -- and believe that Doug and Lucy have just the right take on the material to adapt it for English-speaking audiences," said Columbia production president Hannah Minghella, who will oversee the project for the studio along with Jonathan Kadin.

"...adapt it for English-speaking audiences..."

They're called subtitles. No need to remake the whole movie. I'm getting rather tired of the studio assumptions that we are all too stupid or uncultured to watch a subtitled film.
