Lussier remakes Castle

Patrick Lussier (MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D) has signed on to direct a remake of the 1965 William Castle thriller I SAW WHAT YOU DID AND I KNOW WHO YOU ARE for Warner Bros. The film, set up at Joel Silver's Dark Castle Productions, follows two teen girls who stay up late and make prank phone calls using the mysterious line "I saw what you did and I know who you are..." As you might suspect, one of the random numbers they dial happens to be the home of a man who recently killed his wife. Thinking he's been found out, he decides to track the callers down and silence them.

Like many early Castle thrillers, I SAW WHAT YOU DID had plenty of gimmicks. The film's poster warned that the film deal with "uxoricide," a frightening sounding word that simply means the murder of one's wife. Castle also mentioned in the trailer that theater owners had to install seat belts to prevent people from jumping out of their seats from fright (which was, of course, untrue). It's unclear if Lussier's remake will use today's most popular gimmick, 3D, as his previous film did. Lussier will write the script with Todd Farmer and they hope to get production underway in early 2010.

Extra Tidbit: The original film was based on the 1964 novel "Out of the Dark."
