What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? She's Getting a Remake, That's What!

After all these decades we finally have an answer to the question What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, and you may or may not like it. The remake we first heard about in July now has a backer. Yep, pretty soon everything will be remade, rebooted, reduxed, and redistributed.

According to Variety, Lakeshore Entertainment has come on board to produce and finance a remake of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? with Walter Hill sitting in the director's chair.

Lakeshore Entertainment's Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will be producing along with the Aldrich Co.'s Adell Aldrich. The original production was directed and produced in 1962 by Adell Aldrich's late father, Robert Aldrich, from a screenplay by Lukas Heller.

"Walter Hill is a great American talent," Rosenberg said. "His compelling vision has created a brilliant reimagining of this terrifying Gothic thriller."

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? revolves around a decaying Hollywood mansion where Jane Hudson, a former child star, and her sister, Blanche, a movie queen from the '30s, are forced into retirement after a crippling accident. The 1962 thriller starred Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as the sisters.

Yeah, because Whatever Happened to Baby Jane is a science fiction action film. Sound reasoning as usual.

What you described is what they did to the TR remake so, as usual, you're a contradictory bag of shit.
