IM Global will be bringing us a remake of the Thai classic whether we like it or not. But Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm will be helming so there is hope. Click for the details..
Well you learn something new every day. Apparently 13: Game Of Death was based on a comic book called “13th Quiz Show”. If you haven’t heard of it, the movie was released in 2006 and was directed by Chukiat Sakveerakul. It was about a man who is led through progressively challenging, degrading and dangerous stunts by mysterious callers from an underground reality game show.
Now Deadline report that IM Global will be producing an American remake with Daniel Stamm as director and co-writer along with David Birke. The remake’s title will be shortened to 13. I was a big fan of Stamm’s The Last Exorcism (until the end anyway) so I have some hope for this. If you haven’t seen the original and are a fan of foreign cinema check it out, it’s well worth a look.
