Emily Rose director on The Day The Earth Stood Still

TheDayTheEarthStoodStill.jpgScott Derrickson, the man who directed the very strong The Exorcism of Emily Rose, has been signed up to direct the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. The original was made in 1951 and became a classic science fiction film, telling the story of an alien humanoid and his robot who arrive on Earth and judge the human race on their own fears.

The story comes from Hollywood North Report through Coming Soon.

I think this is a cracking choice, he's proven he's a very strong director on Emily Rose, a film I really did enjoy, and I think this is a challenging but excellent choice for his next film.

If you haven't seen Emily Rose yet I suggest you do, don't be put off by the exorcism in the title, for it's a superb mix of courtroom and horror, and very well crafted. More subtlety over big scares and huge shocks, I really enjoyed it.
