Pandemonium Films' remake of the Japanese thriller Dark Water is creeping toward production, with Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly in discussions to star and Brazilian director Walter Salles set to helm. The Walt Disney Co. feature revolves around a mother and her daughter moving into a new apartment where they are haunted by the ghost of a young girl whose family used to live in the building. The original Japanese version of Dark Water, released last year, was produced by Taka Ichise and directed by Ringu helmer Hideo Nakata. The remake is being produced by Mechanic through his Disney-based Pandemonium Films. A January start date is planned.
