Echo! (Echo!)

You have to give Jesse Bradford credit, he has a pretty impressive set of accomplishments. He fought in Iwo Jima, got stalked by a high school hottie/nutjob, figured out how to stop time, hacked alongside a pixie-haired Angelina Jolie, and had Eliza Dushku for a sister.

Next on the checklist: kickstarting a curse. Bradford will star in THE ECHO, a horror-thriller about a guy who moves into an apartment next to a jealous wife-beating cop. When he intervenes in the abusive relationship, it's the catalyst for a series of hauntings that follow him around until he ultimately confronts it.

The movie is a remake of a 2004 Filipino movie called SIGAW, and will be written and directed by Yam Laranas, the guy behind the original. The new version is being produced by Roy Lee and Vertigo, who is willing to remake anything even moderately Asian (they already inquired about the leftover pad thai and moo shu pork in my fridge).
Extra Tidbit: Vertigo is planning a remake of Johnnie To's lean and brilliant THE MISSION, among 20 or so other projects.
