Helmer open to 3rd ‘Eye’

Hark to direct next pic in horror franchise

Tsui Hark, the Hong Kong-based helmer of “Seven Swords,” is to direct “Eye 3,” third installment of the Chinese-language horror franchise, which has already given rise to two English-language remakes.

New pic, again to be produced by Peter Chan’s Applause Pictures, sees a woman whose photographer husband is killed in a mysterious diving accident haunted by images of things she has never seen. Lensing cranks up this winter. Casting details are not finalized.

“Eye 3” will be handled in international territories by ARM Distribution, the newly launched sales venture backed by Applause and the Ruddy Morgan Organization, and the Little Co.

First “Eye” remake is in the works through Cruise/Wagner and Lionsgate. The second is in development at New Line/Gold Circle. First two Chinese films were helmed by brothers Danny and Oxide Pang.
