Universal Pictures has acquired remake rights to the Colombian horror film “Al final del espectro,” and will develop it as a starring and producing vehicle for Nicole Kidman.
Juan Felipe Orozco, who helmed the original, is attached to direct the remake. Fernley Phillips (“The Number 23”) is writing the script.
Kidman will produce through her Blossom Films banner, teamed with Vertigo Entertainment partners Roy Lee and Doug Davison and Rick Schwartz. Latter was a co-producer of “The Departed” and worked with Kidman as exec producer of “The Others” and “Birthday Girl.”
Plan is for Kidman to play a woman who, after a tragedy, is encouraged by her father to take refuge in a fancy apartment building. She becomes a shut-in, and begins to see a ghost.
Vertigo’s Lee and Davison exec produced “The Invasion,” as well as “The Eye” remake that stars Jessica Alba for Lionsgate. They’re producing “A Tale of Two Sisters” at DreamWorks and are prepping the Screen Gems remake of the unreleased Spanish language horror film “Rec.”
