Elizabeth Banks (Spider-Man 3) will star in the horror remake A Tale of Two Sisters for DreamWorks, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on the Kim Jee-Woon’s 2003 Korean horror film of the same name, the story revolves around two sisters who return home to their father after spending time in a mental institution. Their recovery is hindered by their cruel stepmother’s (Banks) obsessiveness and an interfering ghost.
Brothers Thomas and Charles Guard will direct the film, scheduled to begin shooting in July in Shreveport, La.
Craig Rosenberg adapted the English-language screenplay, with a rewrite from Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro.
