Fessenden to direct 'Orphanage' remake

Posted on

Actor-producer-director Larry Fessenden will direct the English-language remake of The Orphanage, according to The Hollywood Reporter. New Line is remaking of the Guillermo del Toro-produced Spanish-language horror movie; del Toro will also produce the English version with Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilm. Fessenden, whose directing credits include low-budget horror films such as Wendigo, has also written the script with del Toro.

Juan Antonio Bayona’s 2007 original is about a woman who moves her family into the orphanage where she grew up, only to see her son go missing.
