Jessica Alba Has an "Eye" for HK-Horror Remake

by | July 12, 2006 | Comments

The remake of "The Eye" was originally set up at Paramount, and Renee Zellweger was scheduled to play the lead, but the project kind of fell through, which allowed Lionsgate to sweep in and pick it up "in turnaround." They plan to give the lead to Ms. Jessica Alba.

According to Variety, "Lionsgate is picking up Cruise/Wagner-produced remake "The Eye" out of turnaround from Paramount and is negotiating with Jessica Alba to star and French helmers David Moreau and Xavier Palud to direct. Pic will shoot this winter.

Recent genre successes make Lionsgate a natural fit for "The Eye," a thriller about a cornea transplant recipient who sees disturbing images in the mirror that send her on a quest to find out what happened to the eye’s previous owner. Original was made in Hong Kong by Thai directing brothers Danny and Oxide Pang."
