Variety brings news that the always-busy Renee Zellweger will star in Paramount’s remake of the Pang brothers’ thriller "The Eye."

Going ahead with director Hideo Nakata, the "new version of "Eye" is envisioned as a psychological horror film about a girl who sees more than she bargained for when she regains her vision after a cornea transplant.

The original version, produced by Thailand-based Oxide and Danny Pang, grossed $10 million-plus worldwide.

Writers who have worked on the script include Sebastian Gutierrez, Ryne Douglas Pearson and Hillary Seitz.

Nakata directed the original Japanese "Ringu," which was the basis for DreamWorks 2002 horror pic "The Ring." Nakata also directed that film’s Japanese sequel and "The Ring 2" for DreamWorks."
