THE HOST remake:news bits
It looks like I was on the right track, Universal Studios is going to remake the Korean film, THE HOST. Another first time director is helming the project, his name is Fredrick Bond. He’s mostly done commercial work, so we’ll see if he can do the movie justice. I have faith. Thanks to Firstshowing I found out that SLASHFILM.COM has posted a few of his commercials on their site. Mark Poirier, the writer of SMART PEOPLE, is credited for the script. The big selling point for this movie is undoubtably going to be that George Verbinski, director of the PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN movies, is producing. So expect to see that plaster all over the American posters and the commercials.
