“Terminator 2” and “Basic Instinct” producer Mario Kassar is planning a remake of Takashi Miike’s 2000 cult classic “Audition”.
The story of the new version is said to be similar to both the film and Ryu Murakami’s 1997 novel. In this take, a lonely widower is convinced by his filmmaker friend to hold a casting call for a fake movie in order to find a girlfriend.
He finds one girl he likes, a ballerina named Evie Lawrence, but soon his life turns into a nightmare.
Richard Gray is directing from his own adapted screenplay. Filming is slated to begin this Fall after Gray wraps the Jason Momoa-led “Sugar Mountain”
