Neil Marshall Handling Troll Hunter Remake
He's re-writing and will direct

Neil Marshall, Centurion

Neil Marshall always has several potential film projects on the go, but has also been earning praise for his small screen work, including the acclaimed Blackwater episode of Game Of Thrones (which he talked about to us on the Podcast). He’s been busy shooting another episode of Thrones and the pilot for Michael Bay’s pirate drama Black Sails, and has now scored a new film gig, taking the director’s chair for the Troll Hunter remake.

You might recall Andre Ovredal’s 2011 film, which found students investigating a mysterious series of animal killings in the deep Norwegian woods. They discover that some distinctly fantastical creatures are responsible, and that their only hope for survival is a grizzled loner whose life revolves around tracking and killing the trolls.

Marshall will re-write the script, originally crafted by Marc Haimes, and the producers apparently want to find a leading man who hasn’t normally dabbled in horror thrillers. Neil’s name should certainly help with that: he’ll have $25 million to play with and is set to start shooting early next year.
