When a Stranger Calls

GM! Let's begin with this news from Variety of a remake of When a Stranger Calls.

Camilla Belle has been cast as the lead in Screen Gems' remake of When a Stranger Calls, to be directed by Simon West (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider). Variety says shooting is scheduled to star in mid-July.

Jake Wade Wall wrote the remake of the 1979 Columbia Pictures cult horror film, which starred Carol Kane as a high school student traumatized while babysitting by a caller who repeatedly asks, "Have you checked the children lately?" After notifying the police, she is told that the calls are coming from inside the house.

Belle will star in the role played by Kane. She starred opposite Daniel Day-Lewis in The Ballad of Jack and Rose and can be seen in The Chumbscrubber this August.

Looks like Hollywood continues it's streak of unoriginality. The original will be hard to top. Carol Kane was great in this movie.
