The Descent director Neil Marshall is set to write and direct the inevitable remake of Troll Hunter. I really enjoyed the original Norwegian film; it was pretty awesome. I never really saw the need for a remake, but there's money to be made! The plan is to start shooting the film in early 2014.
Christopher Columbus is producing the film along with several of the producers of the original movie. According to Deadline, they are looking to get a big star "not normally associated with the genre" for the male lead.
The original movie focused on a group of students investigating a series of mysterious bear killings. "They follow a mysterious hunter into the deep woods, learning along the way that he is a troll hunter, and that the creatures killing those bears might not confine their appetites to that species only."
Marshall is currently directing the biggest episode of next season's Game of Thrones and has previously worked on films such as Centurion, Doomsday, and Dog Soldiers. Even though I'm not a big fan of Troll Hunter being remade, Marshall should do a good job with it.
