Paul Schrader Writing English-Language Remake of ‘Tomie’

Now here’s a random story that just came in from one of our regular tipsters. We’re told that Paul Schrader – the man behind Taxi Driver and Raging Bull – is penning the current draft of Tomie, the English-language remake of Japanese horror franchise that has spawned seven sequels, comic books and TV shows in it’s homeland. Described as a supernatural Fatal Attraction, when a young man brings his fiancée home for the first time, his father is stunned. She’s the same girl he loved- and killed – 25 years ago. Now she wants him back. Tomie pits father against son in a deadly battle for her love. The film is no longer being developed by Dimension Films.
