You know how it is, another day, another freakin’ remake. Today it appears as if Orson Welles’ 1946 thriller The Stranger will soon be getting a remake, and we have all the early details, care to know who is helming this one?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jack and Joseph Nasser of NGN Releasing will be remaking The Stranger in which they have pegged Joseph Ruben (Sleeping with the Enemy) to direct the project.

The original 1946 film followed, “Edward G. Robinson as an agent of the War Crimes Commission on the hunt of one of the engineers of the Holocaust, now hiding out in Connecticut.”

The remake, however, has been penned by Alanna Belak, and will focus on a “reformed serial killer who has reinvented himself as a small-town professor but is visited by his former partner, who wants them to start killing together again.”
