Walter Hill is set to write and direct a remake of the 1962 classic "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" at Aldrich Co. says THR.

Robert Aldrich's classic starred Bette Davis as former child star Baby Jane Hudson and Joan Crawford as her crippled sister Blanche. Hill said the plan is to create a modern film without modernizing the period.

Hill will adapt the screenplay from Lukas Heller's screenplay for the original, rather than the Henry Farrell novel on which it was based. Hill and Adell Aldrich will produce.
