'Cellular' gets an Asian connection

August 27, 2008|From the Associated Press

Hollywood has been mining Asian movies for ideas for years, but now an American studio is remaking one of its home productions as a Chinese-language movie with local partners.

Warner China Film HG -- a joint venture between Warner Bros. and China's state-run China Film Group and Hengdian Group -- is releasing "Connected" on Sept. 25, remaking the 2004 New Line Cinema thriller "Cellular," starring Kim Basinger.

"Connected" changes the setting to Hong Kong and switches the cast to Chinese-speaking actors.
