Man, why is it that whenever a good foreign film comes out, they have to remake it into English? I hate that. We have two great foreign films being adapted to English: Let the Right One In and The Orphanage.
The Orphanage, directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, was a scary, genius film and was done so well. Even though it was two long even at 110, it was still an incredible movie. But of course, it did so well in Spain so we gotta remake it!
The director of Mothman Prophecies and Arlington Road, Mark Pellington, has been set to direct the remake. I haven’t seen these movies so I can’t say anything about the director choice.
Who knows? Maybe it will be good. I just won’t be spending money to find out.
