Remaking popular foreign movies in America is nothing new…and on most occasions, the remake ends up not being anywhere near as good. Seriously, learn to love reading subtitles””you’ll barely even notice them after a few minutes. Even so, there have been a few U.S. remakes that have been very good and sometimes even surpass the originals.

Another foreign remake has now been planned with the announcement that 1492 Pictures, the production company of Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets director Chris Columbus, has teamed up with CJ Entertainment & Media to acquire the rights to remake Trollhunter.

The 2010 Norwegian film, directed by André Øvredal, is still fairly new around here (you can see it on demand now and it hits select theaters today), and tells the story of a group of students who set off on a mission to document real living trolls on film. You can see the trailer for the original right here, and visit the official site here.

The screenplay for the remake is set to be written by Marc Haimes, and it’s currently unknown how soon those involved hope to get the remake up and running.
