Depth of Field – the production outfit for American Pie‘s Chris and Paul Weitz – is aligning with All Nippon Entertainment Works and Shochiku Company to remake the 2006 film Ghost Train.
The Japanese film, per THR, is “the story of what happens to a group of commuters who get on a subway train at a station deep underground and are terrified as the train’s passengers disappear.
Part of the movie is about a woman trying to find out what happened to her sister who was on the train.”
Josh Miller and Patrick Casey (Golan the Insatiable) are penning the script.
Shooting is expected to begin in 2015 for a 2016 release. Here’s the rub. As with most projects, it needs to find financing. Development financing is in place; partner will be sought to find the rest of the production funds.
