Gold Circle Films has plans to remake the Chao-Bin Su film, Silk, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. They’ve signed the Frankie & Alice team of Marko King, Mary King and Jonathan Watters to provide the screenplay.
Released in Hong Kong in 2006, Silk told the story of the ghost of a child who is pulled back to the world of the living after a scientific experiment. With the spirit trapped in an apartment, a detective is brought in to try and learn about both the afterlife and what really killed the child.
Few details are available about the tone the remake will take, though it is said to be a significant departure from the original film.
Paul Brooks and Rob Cowan will produce with Robin Jonas Scott Niemeyer serving as executive producers.
