The man behind the redo? Walter Hill, who recently directed the Sylvester Stallone flick Bullet to the Head, but also gave us The Warriors, 48hrs., Streets of Fire, Trespass, just to name a few flicks.
The original What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? was released in 1962 and starred Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in a story about Jane Hudson, a former child star, and her sister Blanche, a movie queen forced into retirement after a crippling accident. Together, they live in virtual isolation and stuff gets real weird from there.
Hill will write and direct the remake for The Aldrich Company.
