"Harry Potter" Director to Remake "Troll Hunter"

"Harry Potter" Director to Remake "Troll Hunter"Submit Comment
Director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone), who also wrote the 1985 film "Gremlins," has acquired remake rights to the 2010 Norwegian film "Troll Hunter," which has just hit theaters and VOD in the US.

The documentary-style film is about a group of students whose investigation into a series of mysterious bear killings leads to something sinister. They wind up following and documenting a mystery man who turns out to be a troll hunter.

"Troll Hunter was a visceral, thrilling, cinematic rock and roller coaster ride of a movie. Visually, there are scenes in this film that American audiences have never seen. We want to introduce an international audience to this amazing movie-going experience," said Columbus.

Columbus is planning to produce the remake, which will be written by Marc Haimes ("The Legend of Zorro" producer).

Well, if you want the international audience experience this movie, let them see THIS movie. You know I give the Norwegians a lot of sh*t, but they have better movie industry than Sweden. "Troll Hunter" is the fruit of the Norwegian, or Scandinavian culture, it can't be made in the States. It would be like we made movie out of Sasquatch or the Skunk Ape, it's culturally wrong.

Who cares. Just make 'Milf Hunter' instead.

1. Netflix has yet to receive Troll Hunter.

2. A studio already wants to remake a film that I'm still waiting to see.

3. As Palmer from "The Thing" appropriately once said, "you gotta be f*cking kidding."

Whats wrong with watching the original? Are the public really that dumb that they can't or won't watch a film with subtitles?Or do the studios have no faith...

Actually, I wouldn't mind a remake, as long as they really take full advantage of the premise. The original had a lot of potential and it stayed midway.

All the good scenes with the trolls were in the trailer, but in the movie they came fast and uneffective (not the last one, which was alright). The rest was really boring and the main characters were completely shallow and uninteresting and, in fact, SPOILER ALERT - one of them dies and non of the other characters care! - END OF SPOILER.

The only really great part was when the Troll Hunter explains a little of the nature of the creatures and their characteristics. That was material enough for a decent movie and maybe it could work in this remake.

Where did the troll find that nice fur toga? Does that mean there are skyscraper sized bears in the world?
Trollhunter was okay. Those handheld camera films always starve you for a clear sight at the monster.

Ok, for those of you who have seen this movie how big are these trolls supposed to be anyway?
