Troll Hunter remake rights acquired

Deadline says Chris Columbus’ 1492 Pictures has partnered with CJ Entertainment & Media to acquire remake rights to the 2010 Andre Ovredal-directed Norwegian film Troll Hunter. Marc Haimes is set to write the script. Deal comes just as Magnolia opens the original Troll Hunter in the US and on VOD. The documentary-style film is about a group of students whose investigation into a series of mysterious bear killings leads to something sinister. They wind up following and documenting a mystery man who turns out to be a troll hunter. Columbus will produce with 1492 partners Michael Barnathan and Mark Radcliffe, and CJ Entertainment. Filmkameratene AS’s John M. Jacobsen (who produced the original) will also be a producer along with his partner Sveinung Golimo.
