‘Audition’ Is Set for a U.S. Remake

Audition Is Set for a U.S. RemakeDamn, and just like that we have another news story for you guys regarding a remake. As you guys are aware, The Omen is set for yet another remake, and now we have learned that Audition is next on the chopping block.

According to DeadlineTerminator, Rambo, and Basic Instinct executive producer Mario Kassar is assembling an English-language adaptation of Ryu Murakami’s 1997 novel Audition.

The sire reports that Richard Gray (The Lookalike) will be directing the remake which follows “Sam Davis, who lives alone with his son following the death of his wife seven years prior and is convinced by a filmmaker friend to stage the fake auditions. The former ballerina with a mysterious past he falls for is now named Evie Lawrence.”

Richard Gray also adapted the script, and is expected to begin filming in the Fall.

As you guys all know, the novel was originally adapted in 1999 by Takashi Miike and quickly became a fan-favorite among horror fans. In fact it’s one of my all time favorite films, but an Americanized version? Do we really need it?

        No we don’t need it! Done and done. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. They need to remake bad movies, not good ones. If they ever attempt to remake Clockwork Orange, Hollywood will burn to the ground!

        Leave it alone! It’s disturbing enough as it is.

        I don’t have a problem with remakes, and don’t understand the uproar people cause about them. The original is not being replaced. I’ll be happy to see it. That being said, I can’t imagine for 1 second that it can be done better or even equally as good as the original. One of the most beautifully unsettling movies I’ve seen.
