It had been announced last September that The Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm was looking to direct a remake of 13: Game of Death. Now, it is being reported that he has teamed up with producer Jason Blum for the remake, which is being titled Angry Little God.
The 2006 Thai thriller was acquired and released by Dimension Films, who has also acquired the rights to this remake. Stamm and his writing partner David Birke wrote the script, and it is said that Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) is in talks to star in the film.
“Stamm and his writing partner David Birke adapted the script from the original film which follows a bright but meek social services coordinator who’s drowning in debt and desperate as he’s about to marry the love of his life. He receives a mysterious phone call informing him that he’s on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a cash prize of over $6,000,000. He accepts the challenge, but even with thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, he realizes he’s in over his head. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, his need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return.”
