German director Stephan Rick has been attached to direct a The Good Neighbor, a remake of Jacob Tierney’s indie Good Neighbors, pictured, that starred Jay Baruchel, Anne-Marie Cadieux and Diane D’Aquila, Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned.
The quick remake is being penned by actor-turned-writer Ross Partridge (Mutual Friends), with strong interest being shown in actor Sam Rockwell (Moon, Seven Psychopaths). We’re told an offer has been made to Rockwell, although he’s yet to be attached.
The new version follows a journalist, David, who becomes close with his new neighbor, Robert. The night goes out of control when David accidentally kills a young woman. Robert is already willing to protect his new friend, and helps hides the evidence. Things get strange when Robert will stop at nothing to keep his new friend from being taken away. Creep-y.
