Question: A year or two ago I read in a magazine that Tom Cruise was going to help produce an American version of the Asian movie The Eye, about a blind woman who receives cornea transplants that allow her to see the donor's visions of the dead. The original is one of my favorite movies and I was just wondering whether the remake is still in production. Kevin
Ausiello: The Cruise/Wagner Productions remake of Hong Kong-born, Thai-based brothers Danny and Oxide Pang's The Eye (2002) is still in development at Paramount, but there doesn't seem to have been any progress on the project in some time. If the upcoming American remake of Ju-on (2002) is a huge hit, it will probably spur a scramble to get other remakes of Asian horror pictures into production.
