Scott Derrickson to direct Charlize Theron in the horror thriller Zwart Water
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Here’s another case of the movie recently came out and someone has already decided to do a remake of it. Now these aren’t exactly remakes. They are Americanized versions. Nevertheless, I’d still like to see the originals and show them appreciation. I don’t get why filmmakers/studios won’t just let the one version be if it’s good.
I haven’t heard much about the Dutch horror thriller, ZWART WATER (TWO EYES STARING) about a nine-year girl old who discovers that her new friend is not only sinister but also is her mother’s dead twin. The one helming the “remake” is THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE director, Scott Derrickson. Charlize Theron has been tapped to play the role of the mother who is not entirely right in the head.
No word on when production will begin as Derrickson is currently doing an untitled horror flick for Summit Entertainment. I think it’s safe to assume that this will be his project after that.
