DreamWorks Witnesses The Resurrection

DreamWorks has picked up the remake rights to the Japanese blockbuster “Yomigaeri” (“Resurrection”) says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on the novel by award-winning author Shinji Kajio, “Yomigaeri” centers on a government official sent to a small rural town to investigate the reappearance of a young child who, after missing for 60 years, returns to his mother not having aged at all.

William Nicholson will pen the English-language version. The studio hopes to be in production on the remake later this year.
