Tim Roth & Naomi Watts to Star in "Funny Games" Remake

by |

Apparently the only thing wrong with Michael Haneke's "Funny Games" is that it isn't in English -- so get ready for the Americanized version, which will pair the original director with stars Tim Roth and Naomi Watts. So maybe it's more of a British-ized version.

From Variety: "In "Funny Games," which starts in September, Roth will play a father and husband who tries to protect his family after two psychos invade their cabin during a vacation."


Michael Haneke will be returning to direct his own remake, clearly unaware of what happened when George Sluizer tried to do the exact same thing with his film "Spoorloos." (It turned into "The Vanishing.")
