Remakes of The Orphanage, Julia's Eyes and The Body on the way

Jan. 21, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

Rodar y Rodar, one of Spain's most successful genre film companies, is looking to remake at least four of their own flicks. And while that news may be a bit disheartening to the purists out there, the studio is also developing a batch of new projects that sound very promising.

On the remake front, Rodar is actively working on English-language versions of THE ORPHANAGE (which has been in various stages of development for years), JULIA'S EYES, THE BODY and THE UNINVITED GUEST. Screen Daily says the company has an estimated budget of $13-16 million to work with on these flicks.

Meanwhile, Rodar is also working on a handful of new movies, also set to be shot in English:

- A HOLLOW MAN by Oriol Paulo (The Body), is a thriller set in a small village in which unexplainable crimes occur.
- THE SIGN is a psychological thriller about a woman who tries to escape a past crime.
- ME, MY WIFE and MY DEAD WIFE is a comedy about a man who discovers his wifes dark past after her death.
- TWO by Mar Targarona, is a thriller about a man and a woman who wake up inexplicably joined at the abdomen.

All of these projects are slated to go into production at some point between 2014 and 2016, so it looks like we'll be keeping an eye on Rodar y Roday for a good long while.

I am unobligated to cheer-on Rodar y Rodar's commercial maneuver. Moviefans should just view The Orphanage and Julia's Eyes in their original forms and in their original language. Generally, American remakes suck some life from their foreign sources. And, let us say that an American remake adapts a good foreign movie faithfully in plot. Does that remake duplicate (or otherwise equal) the original's performances and feel? Not really. Just see the films and read the sub-titles. A PG-13 Orphanage

A PG-13 Orphanage or Julia's Eyes is not the same movie that I have seen and enjoyed.
