Two Join Alba in The Eye


Alessandro Nivola (Grace Is Gone) has been cast opposite Jessica Alba in the English-language remake of Hong Kong thriller The Eye.

Variety says that Parker Posey (Superman Returns) also has boarded the project, which Cruise/Wagner Productions is producing for Lionsgate.

Another newcomer is Paramount Vantage, which has signed on as a co-financing partner. French helmers David Moreau and Xavier Palud are set to direct.

The storyline revolves around a woman who, after a cornea transplant, begins seeing disturbing images that send her on a quest to find out what happened to the eye’s original owner.

Thai brothers Danny and Oxide Pang directed the original.
