Gold Circle Films is gearing up to remake the 2006 Hong Kong sci-fi thriller Silk. The studio has hired Frankie & Alice screenwriters Marko King, Mary King, and Jonathan Watters to draft an American version.
The original story centers on a group of scientists who capture the ghost of a young boy in an apartment, and the detective in charge of discovering the boy's identity. The American version will not keep the same plot line, and, although specifics were not revealed, this new story is described as, "Michael Crichton meets The Sixth Sense."
Paul Brooks will produce for Gold Circle Films alongside Rob Cowan and Robin Jonas, with Scott Niemeyer executive producing.
No production schedule was released for the Silk remake at this time.
