A whole lot of names have been dropped in relation to the latest remake of The Lodger, this time being produced for Sony’s new horror-themed line Stage 6 Films. Director David Ondaatje spoke with ION Cinema recently and let them know that the film has been cast from top to bottom.
Shane West will star in one half of the film’s plotline, playing a detective on the trail of a serial killer who is emulating Jack the Ripper on Hollywood’s Sunset Blvd. Simon Baker (pictured) will be the head of the other storyline, playing a handsome strange who shows up at Hope Davis’ guesthouse in West Hollywood.
Phillip Baker Hall, Rebecca Pidgeon, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Mel Harris are also on board for various roles. This Lodger is a redux of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1927 silent film of the same name, which was last redone in 1953 as The Man in the Attic.
