"Infection" Remake is Spreading!

by | March 16, 2006 | Comments

One of the cooler (and lesser-known) J-horror titles of the past few years is Masayuki Ochiai‘s "Infection," which tells the tale of a horribly pestulant patient who causes all kinds of horror in a nearly deserted hospital facility. And now New Line plans to do an American version. Shocker.

Says Variety: "New Line Cinema has obtained remake rights to 2004 Japanese hospital horror film "Infection" and set up the project with original producer Takashige Ichise along with Vertigo Entertainment principals Roy Lee and Doug Davison. The studio has hired Channing Gibson to write the script.

The U.S. version will be set in an isolated hospital where the staff — stymied by mistakes and coverups — races to battle a deadly infection that turns out to be of supernatural origin."

(Rent the original one, horror fans! It’s good stuff.)
