Amazon is working on an English-language remake of the 2014 Austrian horror movie Goodnight Mommy—and Naomi Watts is set to star.

The original film was directed by Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz, who also directed 2020’s hauntingly bleak chiller The Lodge. The plot followed Elias and Lukas, twin brothers who arrive at their mother’s house to find her face covered in bandages. While the woman explains that the bandages are the result of recent cosmetic surgery, Elias begins to suspect that she’s an imposter.

Matt Sobel (Take Me to the River) is directing the remake, which was penned by Kyle Warren. Naomi Watts, of course, is no stranger to English-language remakes of foreign films, having previously starred in Gore Verbinski’s remake of The Ring.
