Charlize Theron lands Scott Derrickson to direct “Zwart Water”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Charlize Theron plans to produce and star in a remake of the Dutch horror thriller “Zwart Water,” and now it appears she has found herself a director.

Scott Derrickson, who wrote and directed “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” for Screen Gems, has come aboard Theron’s project, which will be distributed by Summit Entertainment, THR reports. The director will take a pass at the current “Water” script with his “Emily Rose” collaborator, Paul Boardman, according to the trade.

The story involves a nine-year-old girl who comes to realize that her new friend is actually her mother’s dead twin. How is that even possible? Is that what “Zwart” means? I’m confused, but we’ll probably have it all spelled out to us when the remake hits theaters.

Theron is on hand to play the mother in the remake. It’s the latest in a string of interesting parts for the Oscar-winning actress, who’s about to be seen in Jason Reitman’s “Young Adult,” penned by “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody. Next year, audiences will see Theron in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic “Prometheus,” as well as “Snow White and the Huntsman” opposite “Twilight” superstar Kristen Stewart.
