Zwart Water (Black Water), also known as Two Eyes Staring, originated in the Netherlands. Directed by Elbert Van Strien, it follows a young girl who makes the disturbing discovery that her new friend and playmate is actually A) her mother’s dead twin and B) really rather dangerous. Theron is looking to play the mother, a woman who isn’t exactly sane herself.
The actress picked up the remake rights to the movie last year and has been busy setting things in motion. She approached Derrickson and The Exorcism Of Emily Rose co-writer Paul Boardman about crafting the script and directing and now they’re looking to get it made next year.
Derrickson is currently at work on another Summit film, Sinister, a found footage horror starring Ethan Hawke and Vincent D’Onofrio.Read more at Empire Online
