Takes remake rights to Dutch movie 'Zwart Water'

LONDON -- Oscar winner Charlize Theron has proffered a Dutch wink to remake rights to writer/director Elbert van Strien's "Two Eyes Staring," a movie originally named "Zwart Water" in the Netherlands.

Theron snapped up remake rights through her production banner Denver & Delilah and is, according to Dutch sources, meeting "A-list directors" to attach to the remake.

The original Dutch pic, fresh from a circuit of international festival airings including screenings at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Fantasy Filmfest in Germany and the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival, starred British born Barry Atsma alongside Hadewych Minis, Isabelle Stokkel and Bart Slegers.

Written by van Strien and Paulo van Vliet, "Two Eyes Staring" details the story of a nine-year-old girl who discovers her sinister friend is the ghost of her mother's dead twin.
