Shawn Levy To Direct “Starman” Remake

“Night at the Museum” and “Real Steel” director Shawn Levy has signed on to helm and produce a remake of the John Carpenter sci-fi romantic drama “Starman” for Sony Pictures.

Jeff Bridges starred in the original as an alien who crash lands on Earth and assumes the form of a woman’s dead husband. He forces her (Karen Allen) to take him to a rendezvous site but on the road trip, a romance blossoms, all the while the government is in hot pursuit to capture him.

Arash Amel (“Grace of Monaco”) is penning the screenplay. Michael Douglas, who produced the original, will also produce this remake.
