No, Guillermo del Toro has not rejuvenated the ailing remake of Eyes of Laura Mars under a new moniker, which I think is something we can all agree is a good thing. Instead, Julia's Eyes is a new Spanish property set to be produced by the man with more in-development titles than IMDb can shake a proverbially over-sized stick at. The film, about a woman whose vision deteriorates after she begins investigating the unexplained death of her twin sister, is shaping up to be somewhat of a reunion for the creative talent in and behind The Orphanage (which will soon have to be prefaced as 'the original Orphanage').

Belen Rueda, who was the beautiful anchor in the aforementioned fright fest, is staged to star as the titular Julia. Joining Guillermo del Toro will be Alfonso Cuaron and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, seeing as their Cha Cha Cha label will be one of the main production umbrellas involved. The film is set to be directed by Guillem Morales, a man with whom I am unfortunately unfamiliar. But if that triumvirate of Spanish language directorial Gods has faith in him, that's good enough in my book.

The full details are up at Variety by way of Dread Central.
