Phone: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Focus Features' new Rogue division -- which specializes in the distribution of high-quality suspense, action, thriller and urban features -- has come aboard a U.S. remake of the Korean horror hit Phone.

Directed by Byeong-ki Ahn, the original Phone was one of the highest-grossing local films released in South Korea two years ago, dialing up admissions of nearly 2 million. "Phone" centers on a reporter who changes her cell phone number after publishing a controversial article that results in death threats. But when a friend's daughter answers the new phone and exhibits increasingly bizarre behavior, the reporter begins to investigate a mysterious string of deaths that have haunted her phone number's previous owners.
