James Marsden and Patrick Wilson are both currently in talks to star in a dark indie thriller entitled Loft.
Based on Erik Van Looy’s disturbing 2008 Belgian film, the plot follows five men who hold keys to a penthouse apartment where they go to exorcise their lustful demons.
But when a dead woman turns up in the apartment, chained to a bed, all hell breaks loose.
Taking his cue from Funny Games helmer Michael Haneke, Van Looy will direct the English-language remake of his earlier film, with a script from A Nightmare On Elm Street’s Wesley Strick.
Shooting should kick off by the end of 2011.
Lofty? Or lousy? Should directors be allowed to remake their own films? Talk it out below...
