Chris Columbus has discovered he loves Troll Hunter. The Home Alone and Harry Potter director’s 1492 Pictures has partnered with CJ Entertainment & Media to purchase the remake rights to the Norwegian film. In current release in the US, the festival favorite follows a group of students working on a documentary about a recent string of bizarre bear murders (I don’t know if that means bears were murdered or bears were murdering people. Or other bears for that matter. (Somebody make this film)), who discover something far more terrifying. They then document a man known at the Troll Hunter as hunts the giants throughout the woodside.

Troll Hunter was a visceral, thrilling cinematic rock and roller coaster ride of a movie.  Visually, there are scenes in this film that American audiences have never seen.  We want to introduce an International audience to this amazing moviegoing experience!” said Chris Columbus.

I think I can speak for the American movie-going public when I say, the movie needs to end with a giant troll swallowing a huge bomb, and then grumbling “Oh, shhh–” mere seconds before exploding. That’s why you guys didn’t like Cloverfield, right?? (Deadline)

I don’t see why Chris Columbus can’t make “disaster-thriller” a legitimate genre. He’ll give it a go with an adaptation of the novel Cyprus House by Michael Koryta, the story of a WWI vet who faces a hurricane in the wake of premonitions of his companions’ deaths. In case it wasn’t clear, the film is set in 1935. If it was set in the present day, the protagonist would be really, really, really old.

'The Help' Trailer Looks Like 'Oprah's Book Club: The Movie'

While the quality of his more recent work hasn’t matched the potential he exhibited with smart family comedies such as Home Alone and Adventures in Babysitting (even his two Harry Potters were considered the runts of the litter), his 1492 production company seems to have been keeping itself quite busy recently with The Help (ugh), and a remake of the creepy Korean film Hello Ghost, which he would also direct. His next trip behind the camera will be the next installment of the ‘Percy Jackson’ saga, and there’s nothing you or me or anyone else can do about it. (Deadline)
