The Eye reshot

10.01.2007
It appears that Lionsgate have ordered two weeks of reshoots on the upcoming Jessica Alba movie THE EYE. The movie, a remake of the Pang brothers' Asian horror flick, is about a woman who receives an eye transplant, which allows her to see into the supernatural world and was originally directed by David Moreau and Xavier Palud (ILS). Patrick Lussier (DRACULA 2000) has been brought into do the additional work. This is a pity, but it's hardly a unique occurrence. We saw pretty much the exact same thing happen on THE INVASION earlier this year. I don't know how you can go wrong when you're shooting an Alba flick, just point the camera at her and people will be happy. A shower scene wouldn't go amiss, but when you've got someone that looks like she does, unless you have her shrouded in darkness or wearing a ninja mask all the time, you should be fine. Damn these up-and-coming foreign directors who're trying to be artistic and original, what's their deal?! Point and shoot, guys!
Extra Tidbit: Renee Zellweger was at one point cast as the lead in this film.

1--It's a remake.
2--Reshoots usually mean a "good enough" movie, meaning one that actually stands a chance at being good from the git-go, is now getting unnecessary additional scenes to make it more "poppy." THE EXORCIST: THE BEGINNING and THE INVASION, anyone?
3--Shouldn't Patrick Lussier be working on the HEADHUNTER movie by this point?

Typical...

The same thing happened to the Pangs with The Messengers, and it showed. I guess it wasn't "PG13" enough for the studios eh? Jerks...

I didnt the eye was a great film in the first place, I liked it better then other japenese ghost stories such as Juon or Ringu. Whenever they remake these they turn into more of a piece of crap then its original...Alba is hot though.

I dont get it. David Moreau and Xavier Palud's ILS got gooe reviews but Lussier, what did he ever do that was good ? I mean Dracula 2000 was crap for sure.

Anyways a remake of that classic wasnt a good idea from teh start, especially with Alba starring.
