Be With You

GM! Let's start off with this little story from Variety:

Warner Bros. has acquired remake rights to the 2004 Japanese hit Be With You, with Jennifer Garner starring and producing via her newly formed Vandalia Films banner, reports Variety. Garner and partner Juliana Janes will produce with the American Beauty team of Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen.

The original was directed by Nobuhiro Doi from a novel by Takuji Ichikawa. On her deathbed, a dying young woman tells her husband and young son that she will return to them. A year later, father and son happen upon a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to the dead woman.

Alias star Garner recently wrapped Catch and Release, a romantic comedy for Columbia written and directed by Erin Brockovich scribe Susannah Grant.
