Gold Circle Films has brought onboard three co-writers from the Golden Globe-nominated, Halle Berry drama Frankie & Alice to remake the Taiwanese supernatural thriller Silk. Written/directed by Chao-Bin Su, the 2006 pic (originally titled Gui si) tells the story of a group of scientists who manage to trap a child’s ghost in an apartment. From there, the film centers on the detective who is responsible for learning the ghost’s identity and the cause of its demise.
The writers being charged with the remake are Marko King, Mary King and Jonathan Watters. According to Heat Vision, the trio will look to steer away from the plot of the original with the hopes of creating a film that plays like “Michael Crichton meets The Sixth Sense.” Paul Brooks, Rob Cowan (The Crazies), Robin Jonas (Mr. Brooks) and Scott Niemeyer will co-produce the pic for Gold Circle. Speaking of which, the studio is currently in post on the horror/thriller The Haunting in Georgia starring Chad Michael Murray and Abigail Spencer. It will also release Anna Kendrick’s romantic comedy Pitch Perfect.
