DreamWorks to redo hit Japanese film

20 May 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

DreamWorks has picked up the remake rights to Japanese blockbuster "Yomigaeri" ("Resurrection") from Tokyo Broadcasting System and tapped William Nicholson to pen the English-language version.

Based on the novel by award-winning author Shinji Kajio, "Yomigaeri" centers on a government official sent to a small rural town to investigate the reappearance of a young child who, after missing for 60 years, returns to his mother not having aged at all.

A commercial success when it was released in Japan in 2003, "Yomigaeri" received four nominations for Japan's top film awards, including best screenplay, director, actress and score.

Brad Krevoy is producing via his MPCA shingle along with Filosophia's Tetsu Fujimura as well as original producer Takashi Hirano.

"Yomigaeri" will mark the fourth Asian film that DreamWorks has brought to the States. The studio made "The Ring" and "The Ring Two" and is in postproduction on a new version of the South Korean film "A Tale of Two Sisters".

The studio hopes to be in production on the remake later this year. »
