Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke's new project Wish Upon seriously sounds like a Wishmaster remake... and I don't think that's a bad thing. Here's the synopsis – via The Wrap – for her upcoming movie Wish Upon:
A 16-year-old girl who finds a magic box that promises to grant her seven wishes, but with each wish comes dark and gruesome consequences.
I mean, who doesn't want to relive the Wishmaster magic?
Wishmaster will always hold a special place in my heart alongside the Leprechaun movies and the sillier horror sequels like Jason X – it's always fun too see great comedy-horror that doesn't take itself too seriously.
Hardwicke is a highly capable director and movies about characters suffering unexpected consequences from their magical gifts are always pretty entertaining; it certainly worked for Goosebumps...
