Phone (2010) Well, after years in development hell it looks like the remake of Byeong-ki Ahn's Phone is finally on track. According to UHM, the film is slated for a summer 2010 release with filming starting this fall. In true Shimizu style, Byeong-ki Ahn will be remaking his own film and shooting on location in the country of origin, namely South Korea. It is to be a joint US-SK production with the Korean company Mirovision and the US company Imprint. Myself, I've got mixed feelings. I didn't think the original was anything special, so I don't have to worry about this remake ruining my perception of it. Hopefully the studio doesn't butcher Byeong-ki's vision, though, because the studios nowadays really have no idea what they're doing. Who knows, maybe if this remake does well the previously planned Apt. remake will get going again. Maybe we'd even see a redo of Gawi. On an unrelated note, how many people do you think will see the trailer and assume it's a sequel to One Missed Call?
