Well, its been a few weeks since we last heard any news regarding a remake, so you knew it was a little overdue. So I am afraid to say that the Bette Davis-Joan Crawford classic Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? is indeed receiving the remake treatment, read on for the details.
According to Deadline, Lakeshore partners Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will be producing alongside The Aldrich Company’s Adell Aldrich, which will see Walter Hill helming the remake.
Hill told the site, “The idea is to make a modern film without modernizing the period,… It needs to resonate the golden age of Hollywood.”
Lakeshore is said to help Hill re-create the nightmarish relationship between two sisters in a “crumbling Hollywood mansion, where former child star Jane Hudson (Davis) holds captive her crippled former movie-queen sister (Crawford).”
So what do you guys say? Do you think they can pull it off?
