Scott Derrickson, who is currently working on Sinister for Summit Entertainment, will be getting behind the camera for the long-gestured English-language remake of the Dutch thriller Two Eyes Staring (Zwart Water), which has one of the most idiotic twists in the past few years.
Summit is also getting behind this redo with Charlize Theron (Prometheus) attached to produce and star, reports THR.
Derrickson, the writer-director behind The Exorcism of Emily Rose and The Day the Earth Stood Still, will helm the remake from a script he wrote with Emily Rose collaborator Paul Boardman.
“ ‘Zwart Water’ centers on a nine-year girl old who discovers that her new friend is not only sinister but also is her mother’s dead twin. Theron is attached to play the mother, who is not quite right in the head, as they say.”
The movie, which was released in Europe last year, was re-titled Two Eyes Staring when hit international circuits, most recently playing at Fantastic Fest in September.
