Did you know that someone was remaking Ataru Oikawa’s “Apartment 1303″? Nobody told me about it, either. Then again, who would have thought there would be any interest whatsoever in an American remake of a less-than-spectacular Japanese horror movie? If this was 2002, I could see that happening, but given that the genre is just about played out here in the States, I’m actually kind of shocked that this article is even being written.
But, I digress.
The sales poster for director Daniel Fridell’s remake, which will star Mischa Barton, Rebecca De Mornay, John Diehl, Julianne Michelle, and Robert Blanche, honestly doesn’t look half bad. Given that I wasn’t a fan of the original film, I suppose this production has nowhere to go but up. Good for them.
