Pellington Helms "Orphanage" Remake

Mark Pellington ("The Mothman Prophecies," "Arlington Road") is set to direct the remake of supernatural thriller "The Orphanage" for New Line Cinema says Variety.

2007's "Spanish-language El Orfanato" followed a woman (Belen Rueda) who takes over the orphanage where she was raised, to open a home for disabled children.

Then her young son begins to play with the same imaginary friend who terrorized her when she was a child.

Like the Spanish version, Guillermo del Toro is set to produce bad co-wrote the script with Larry Fessenden. Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson will also produce.
