Mothman Prophecies Director Gets To Remake Guillermo del Toro’s The Orphanage

New Line has picked “Arlington Road” and “The Mothman Prophecies” director Mark Pellington to remake the Guillermo del Toro produced super spooky “The Orphanage” in English for us English speaking types.

In the original, a woman returns to an orphanage where she was raised as a child to open a school for disabled children. After her arrival to the worlds spookiest building, her son begins to be terrorized by an entity that Mom was also spooked by when she was a child. Great place to return to. Thanks Mom. The original was in Spanish and was really good, subtitles and all. Larry Fessenden and del Toro wrote the script. Here’s a clip. Thanks Variety.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.
