Vantage Remaking Lake MungoGoon
According to THR Paramount Vantage is going to remake the Austrailian horror film Lake Mungo. The original film premiered at the AFM over the past weekend. The one question I have is why remake a film that is from Austrailia? Now I understand films that are not in English or are at least a couple years old. But this? Really?
Sold under Arclight Films' genre division Darclight, "Lake Mungo" tells the story of a teenager whose apparent death sets off a series of paranormal events. Frightened by what appears to be otherworldly activity, her family discovers secrets about their daughter as well as what lurks beneath Lake Mungo. The original film was shot in a sort of faux-documentary style, but the new version will be a narrative adaptation.
