Director Walter Hill (48 Hours, The Warriors, Bullet To The Head) will be helming a remake of What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? for Lakeshore Entertainment, per Variety. He’ll be directing from his own script (which has been adapted from the original novel by Henry Farrell).
The film “revolves around a decaying Hollywood mansion where Jane Hudson, a former child star, and her sister Blanche, a movie queen from the 30′s are forced into retirement after a crippling accident.” The original 1962 thriller starred Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.
No word on casting or a release date yet, but stay tuned!
