13: Game of Death

His profitable found footage horror film The Last Exorcism already has a sequel in the works, but now director Daniel Stamm is moving onto another horror film in the form of a remake. THR reports the director will be at the helm of an English-language remake of the Thai horror thriller 13: Game of Death. The story follows a financially strapped salesman who receives an anonymous phone call informing him he's on a hidden camera game show, and that if he complete 13 tasks, he will receive a multi-million cash prize. But the tasks escalate to a dangerous and extreme level that bring the salesman to a point of no return.

Here's a trailer for the film to get an idea of the thrills within 13: Game of Death:

Apparently the film has become a bit of a cult favorite for its skewering of the media and silly reality TV shows, and it sounds like it's ripe with potential for a remake. The concept is certainly interesting with flares of Saw meeting a dark reality TV element of unseen spectators manipulating a man to pull off twisted tasks just to win some cash Stamm will adapt the screenplay with his writing partner David Birke and the plan to is go into production sometime early next year. Likely that means Stamm won't be returning to direct The Last Exorcism sequel in the works right now. Sound good?
