Larry Fessenden Exits ‘The Orphanage’ Remake

Sad news from the set of Dark Sky Films’ Stake Land where producer-turned-actor/director Larry Fessenden was on hand to promote the film. Back in August it was revealed that Fessenden would be helming a remake of The Orphanage for New Line Cinema and Guillermo del Toro. It appears the dream is dead. “THE ORPHANAGE was two years of waiting,” Fessenden tells AITH. “Working on the script with Guillermo was a very exciting experience, but then I got into a casting miasma and that’s where the thing is; I think they’re gonna do it another way, actually. So I think I’m out of it. Hopefully they’ll still use my script, but I’m not sure I’m directing it anymore. That’s Hollywood for ya.” Click the link for more.
