I can hear it already in my head a massive resounding ”sigh” and quite rightly so. It was announced several months back there were talks to remake Andre Ovredal’s The Troll Hunter, but is there really any need?

Well, apparently to some people there is. According to the guys over at Deadline, Chris Columbus’ banner 1492 Pictures have joined forces with CJ Entertainment & Media to acquire the remake rights for The Troll Hunter.

The remake is said to be penned by Marc Haimes with 1492 Pictures and CJ Entertainment & Media producing the flick, also original producers Filmkameratene AS’s John M. Jacobsen and Sveinung Golimo will also be on producing duties.

At this time no director is announced but it seems a little coincidental that this news is announced on the day of release of The Troll Hunter in the States.

Synopsis: “Shot in a vérité style, TROLLHUNTER is the story of a group of Norwegian film students that set out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has been covered up for years by a government conspiracy. A thrilling and wildly entertaining film, THE TROLL HUNTER delivers truly fantastic images of giant trolls wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore.” The Troll Hunter is written & directed by Andre Ovredal and stars Otto Jespersen, Glenn Erland Tosterud, Tomas Alf Larsen and Johanna Mørck.
