Audition remake on the way

Remember when every single Japanese horror film was getting remade, regardless of whether anyone thought it was a good idea? Well, here's some tetro news for you.

After The Ring, Dark Water, The Grudge, One Missed Call and Pulse, we now have news that Audition, Takashi Miike's acclaimed 1999 thriller is getting Hollywoodised.

The film, about a widower who holds fake auditions to find a wife only to discover that his new love is in fact utterly deranged, has been taken on by Mario Kassar, producer of Basic Instinct and, ermmm, Showgirls. Kassar is keeping the story the same but, yes, transplanting it to American soil.

Both films are based on the novel by Ryu Murakami and the new version will be directed by Richard Gray, director of upcoming Justin Long thriller The Lookalike.

If you haven't seen Audition and you're still perfectly unaware of how terrifying the ending is then go watch it now. Here's the trailer:
