Remake of 'Baby Jane' in the Works?

By October 2, 2012

Follow me on:

Whatever Happened to Baby JaneJust in time for the 50th anniversary of the camp classic, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962), comes word of a possible remake of Robert Aldrich's thriller starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.

The remake, which will be written and directed by Walter Hill (48 HRS., Brewster's Millions), was first put into development back in July when Lakeshore Entertainment committed to adapting Henry Farrell's novel.

Set in a decaying Hollywood mansion, the story focuses on a former child star (Davis) and her invalid sister (Crawford), herself a star from the 1930s forced into retirement following a crippling accident. Both live together in an increasingly toxic relationship that ultimately ends in tragedy.

No word yet on which actresses will tackle on the iconic roles, since the project is still in the early stages. Meryl Streep and Glenn Close? Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus? You never know.
