Hong Kong director Fruit Chan is attached to helm the English-language remake of Hideo Nakata's Don't Look Up, according to Variety.com. In the new version, backed by Distant Horizon (Prey) and Japan's Action 5, a movie production experiences supernatural weirdness due to an old piece of film that captured a woman's murder. "I loved the original film by Hideo Nakata," Chan said. "And I was happy to take on the remake. For too long I've been labeled as an art-house director. I'm a director." Filming is expected to take place in South Africa and Romania within the next few months. Chan is best known to horror fans for his "Dumplings" segment in the Asian anthology film Three... Extremes, which he later expanded to a full-length solo feature.
