Here’s a movie buff confessional, I have never seen Orphan. I hear nothing but great things about it. Variety had the exclusive news that Isabelle Fuhrman will reprise her role as Esther. I may have to watch Orphan change the fact that I have never seen it.
Fuhrman played Esther, an Eastern European child adopted by parents (played by Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga) overcoming an unspeakable loss of their own. Orphan ended up making $80 million worldwide on a $20 million budget.
William Brent Bell (“The Boy,” “The Devil Inside”) will direct the pic from a script by David Coggeshall. Dark Castle Entertainment and Entertainment One will produce the film.
