Marisa Tomei, Liv Tyler become neighborly in 10A/10B

tomei-tylerThough I normally hate remakes and re-adaptations, I’m actually a bit curious as to how Marisa Tomei and Liv Tyler are going to handle themselves in the remake of the 1995 Korean psychological horror film 301, 302, now to be called 10A/10B (in reference to their apartment numbers).

As Variety notes, the story that will be produced and financed by Christopher Mallick’s Oxymoron Entertainment will also be directed by original director Chul-soo Park, so that’s a plus in its favor. Tomei and Tyler will be playing a “culinary perfectionist” who lives next door to a fading actress, and if the movie retains the character detail from the original movie, the actress will be bulemic as well.

The most fascinating detail of this movie is that not only can I not predict which actress will be playing which part, this movie also has the potential of being one that could possibly pass the Bechdel test, and in my opinion, that’s always a good thing.

    I would love to live in 10C, even if it is in a horror movie. Shiiiit.

    The Bechdel test, eh? I like it. The thought of it will probably permeate my future movie viewings, and probably ruin some female characters for me. Which is sad. But it will make me look forward to those movies which do pass.
