Roth jumping into ‘Water’

Thesp joins Nakata redo

Tim Roth is set to join Jennifer Connelly, Pete Postlethwaite and John C. Reilly in “Dark Water,” the remake of the hit Japanese film being directed by Walter Salles for Bill Mechanic’s Pandemonium. Disney will distribute.

Pic revolves around a mother and daughter who escape a custody battle by retreating to a run-down apartment building. There, they are haunted by the ghost of a former resident.

Original pic was directed by Hideo Nakata. Rafael Yglesias wrote the script, and Mechanic produces with Roy Lee and Doug Davison.

Roth will play the mother’s attorney, an odd lawyer who works out of his car.

Roth has been working up a storm lately, starring in the FilmFour pic “To Kill a King,” the John Sayles-directed “Silver City” and the Terrence Malick-scripted “Beautiful Country.”
