Commercials helmer Adam Berg has been signed up to direct the Erhen Kruger scripted revamp. The original movie starred James Woods as a cable television programmer who is drawn into a mystery involving a pirate TV station seemingly featuring snuff movies.
The remake will ‘update’ the concept, turning it into more of a big budget action thriller featuring nanotech. Berg won the Film Grand Prix at the Cannes International Advertising Festival. Kruger has previously written the screenplays for Scream 3 (2000) and the Philip K. Dick inspired Impostor (2001), as well as two Transformers movies.
