David R. Ellis, who has made a career out of making ridiculous movies (Snakes on a Plane and Shark Night 3D), has been set to direct the live-action remake of the Japanese anime Kite, per Variety. The original film, released in 1998, centers on a young girl who sets out to track down the killer of her father, who was a cop. The characters occupy a post-financial collapse failed state where corrupt security traffics young women for profit. I can’t really envision Ellis taking on such straight gritty material, but then again he may be putting his own spin on things. Anant Singh and Brian Cox are producing through their Distant Horizon banner. Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the original film.

Here’s the trailer for 1998’s Kite directed by Yasuomi Umetsu:
