TROLL HUNTER Remake gets DOG SOLDIERS Director
When Chris Columbus bought the rights to the Norwegian found footage, TROLL HUNTER, in 2011 The Monster’s Eye is sure a few people were a bit skeptical about what the HARRY POTTER director was going to do with less child friendly material.
Well, it looks like the film – a dry witted comedy horror about a disgruntled government worker who kills Trolls – will get a little extra bite with it being confirmed that DOG SOLDIERS’ Neil Marshall taking on directorial duties.
Marshall is presently filing an episode of GAME OF THRONES, but apparently has been given a director’s pass of the script written by Marc Haimes.
Marshall is no stranger to working with creatures lurking in the dark what with his work on the bloody brilliant THE DESCENT. We’ve got high hopes for a remake that’s worthy of André Øvredal’s original.
The $25 million film is due to start production in the first quarter of 2014.
