Belle falls for ‘Stranger’

Thesp answers 'Calls' for thriller remake

Camilla Belle has been cast as the lead in Screen Gems’ remake of “When a Stranger Calls,” to be directed by Simon West.

Shooting is skedded for mid-July.

Jake Wade Wall penned the remake of the 1979 Columbia Pictures cult horror pic, which starred Carol Kane as a high school student traumatized while babysitting by a caller who repeatedly asks, “Have you checked the children lately?” After notifying the police, she is told that the calls are coming from inside the house.

Belle will star in the role played by Kane.

Davis Entertainment’s John Davis and Wyck Godfrey are producing with Ken Lemberger.

Belle stars opposite Daniel Day-Lewis in IFC’s “The Ballad of Jack and Rose.” She also stars in Ari Posin’s “The Chumscrubber,” with Glenn Close and Ralph Fiennes, which preemed at Sundance this year. Thesp just wrapped “The Quiet,” an indie also starring Elisha Cuthbert and Edie Falco.
