Norwegian Indie “Trollhunter” Already Being Optioned For American Remake
It’s just hitting U.S. theaters in a limited run this weekend, and director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone, Mrs. Doubtfire, Home Alone) is working towards bringing the Norwegian indie hit Trollhunter to Hollywood.
“Troll Hunter was a visceral, thrilling cinematic rock and roller coaster ride of a movie. Visually, there are scenes in this film that American audiences have never seen. We want to introduce an International audience to this amazing moviegoing experience!” said Columbus.
With remakes like Fincher‘s upcoming The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Matt Reeves’s Let Me In, it appears there’s no shortage of filmmakers who are jumping at the opportunities to re-imagine the best of foreign cinema for American audiences.
