"The Orphanage" Remake in Talks with "Arlington Road" Helmer

Posted: January 4th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"The Orphanage" Remake in Talks with "Arlington Road" HelmerSubmit Comment
New Line Cinema is moving forward with "The Orphanage," which is the remake of the Spanish-language ghost tale "El Orfanato." It is now in discussions with Mark Pellington (Monthman Prophecies, Arlington Road) to direct the new version.

Guillermo Del Toro was the creative supervisor on the 2007 original film and will return for the remake as producer and co-writer of the script. His involvement will likely be limited, since he's hard at work on "The Hobbit" films, which he is helming back to back.

The original "Orphanage" stars Belen Rueda (The Sea Inside) as a woman who takes over the orphanage where she was raised, to open a home for disabled children. Then her young son begins to play with the same imaginary friend who terrorized her when she was a child.

still need to see the original, which most people tell me is pretty good and creepy. i'm guessing the remake might not be so bad as long as del toro is involved.

Why does everything need to be remade? Is it SO hard to read some subtitles?

Original was really good, but original was also released just 2yrd ago.....a remake already???? I call shenanegans! Get original Hollywood and quit feeding us all of this bullsh*t! Do we really need this to be made?

I auditioned earlier this month for a role in a upcoming teen romance drama. A young man resemling Teen Wolf stalks young girls who just turn 18. To make a long story short, he ends up having sex with them, and spills his seed on their stomachs to avoid child support. Its scheduled to hit the WB next fall.

Honestly. Make an english dub and screw off with the remake. A remake implies that it can be done better, or it's not done right. If it's just because you don't understand spanish, DUB THE MOVIE! Remaking the whole movie for a language barrier is LAME AS HELL.

Actually, dubbing a movie is far worse than remaking it. Cause, not only will dubbing make you look like an idiot who can't read subtitles, it'll also remove the whole feeling of autencity. If you remake a movie, you can at least give it a personal nuance. But, of course, seeing the original and just read the subtitles, is the best

And as far as this film goes, I didn't care for it. I tend to like spanish horror films, but the ending was too weak.

This is another pointless, destined-to-be-terrible American remake. Let the Right One In is perfectly fine without a Cloverfield helmer-directed remake and the upcoming Death at a Funeral is the exact same thing as the British original just with all black "comedians." The Orphanage was really good movie with some truly awesome scares, guaranteed the remake sucks c*ck.

And Mark Pellington isnt exactly a director I would trust to remake a great film...that only came out 2 YEARS AGO!

Most older creepy movies that are remade turn out to not be creepy in the remake. But isn't it a little soon to have a remake of this already?

The orphanage, sounds like a bunch of future strippers/prostitutes and gangbangers being haunted by vindandy (that would scare the sh*t out of anyone especially VDOD with that love note it just sent you)
