The Hollywood Reporter reports that actor-producer-director Larry Fessenden has signed on to helm The Orphanage, New Line’s remake of the Guillermo del Toro-produced Spanish-language horror movie. Fessenden has written the script with del Toro, who is producing the new film with Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilm.

The 2007 pic was directed by del Toro protege Juan Antonio Bayona and centered on a woman who, upon returning to the orphanage where she grew up, discovers that her son’s imaginary friend is the same person who terrorized her when she was a child.
