The Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm has been tapped to direct 13, a remake of the Thai horror-thriller 13: Game of Death, which followed a salesman who ends up on a macabre hidden-camera game show where he must perform 13 extreme tasks to win millions in cash. Stamm is currently adapting the screenplay with writing partner David Birke, production/finance company IM Global said today. IM Global CEO Stuart Ford is producing with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik, which is IM Global’s production joint venture with Alliance Films. Kiki Miyake of Little Magic, which brought the project to IM Global, also is producing. Jason Blum and Somsak Techaratanaprasert of the original film’s producer Sahamongkolfilm are executive producing. Stamm is repped by CAA and Underground Films & Management, Birke by Paradigm and Madhouse Entertainment.
IM Global and Automatik have several projects in the works, including Safe with Jason Statham, Bullet to the Head with Sylvester Stallone and Welcome to the Punch with James McAvoy.
