'Goodnight Mommy' Will Get An Amazon Remake With Naomi Watts Starring
Please tell me you've atleast heard of this 2015 sleeper hit
Goodnight Mommy has one of the most unsettling stories with two boys unsure of this new change their mother bestowed upon her face, deeming them paranoid of her behavior. The ending was cruel, leaving me somewhat surprised not a lot of people have seen this 2015 horror/thriller.
The German Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala directed film hasn't received the best ratings, as impactful as it was. Amazon has been looking to reinvigorate the film with Naomi Watts as the mother. On top of landing the lead role, Watts will executive produce the film along with the directors of the original.
Naomi Watts is fantastic in all of her lead roles, starring in more films than I can count. I'm excited to see this story get the attention it deserves, maybe more eyes will be turned toward the German version.
Here's the trailer for the original film which you can view on Amazon Prime video, Tubi, or a couple of other platforms.
