Is ’2BR/1BA’ a Ripoff Of the Japanese ’2LDK’?!

2BR/1BA

Okay, I’m insanely confused right now.

For the past few years Relativity, first, and then Highland Film Group, have been working on developing a remake of the Japanese cult classic 2LDK. This past February it was announced that Jessica Alba would star in the Kevin Connolly-directed comedic redo entitled The Wright Girls.

I was shocked to learn this morning, via ScreenDaily, that Grindstone Entertainment and Lionsgate had acquired the indie thriller 2BR/1BA, starring Machete‘s Alexa Vega, Spencer Grammer and Kathryn Morris.

What was so perplexing is that the story “follows the lives of two opposite roommates (Vega, Grammer) whose differences come to a head over the course of 24 hours in a physical, drag out battle over money, space, and morals.

Doing some digging, I came across the following trailer, which looks to me exactly like 2LDK, except they don’t appear to be models. I added some footage from 2LDK for reference below the trailer for 2BR/1BA. Take a look and tell me what you think; it’s bizarre, right? I mean, it’s a cool as hell story, and I love the original 2LDK, but I’m not okay with someone ripping it off even if it does look pretty awesome (Vega slaps her roommate across her face with a dildo!)…

    It certainly looks like a 2LDK remake! It looks pretty shit though. I loved 2LDK.
