Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett Team for I Saw the Devil Remake


If you haven’t seen Kim Jee-Woon’s stellar 2010 South Korean revenge flick I Saw the Devil, you should immediately stop what you’re doing and land yourself a copy like right now. We’ll wait here for you to come back… Got it? Good. Now then, an American remake (of course) is on its way, and it sounds as if a director has been chosen.

The Wrap is reporting that Simon Barret and Adam Wingard (The Guest) are nearing a deal to write and direct an English-language remake of the film for Snoot Entertainment.

Snoot’s Keith Calder and Jessica Calder will produce with Adi Shankar and Spencer Silna.

Original Synopsis
When his pregnant fiancee becomes the latest victim of a serial killer, a secret agent blurs the line between good and evil in his pursuit of revenge.
