Things have apparently changed, however. Fangoria is reporting that director Vincenzo Natali (whose latest film, Splice, is only a few weeks away from opening nationwide in the States) has been hired to replace Kahn not only as director but also as the screenwriter. Suddenly I am very interested in the project again; funny how that can happen when you replace the guy who directed the music video for Britney Spear's Toxic with the guy who directed Cube.
The reason for the question mark in the slug above, however, is because as of right now The Hollywood Reporter article that Fango links to is incredibly light on the details. But with Natali now making the interview rounds to promote Splice, I've no doubt that more news about his attachment to the project will emerge in the coming weeks.
