Noami Watts to star in Goodnight Mommy remake

Naomi Watts will lead the cast of the English-language remake of 'Goodnight Mommy'.

The 52-year-old actress will star in and executive produce the Amazon Studios take on the Austrian psychological thriller, which became a cult classic when it was released back in 2014.

The plot centres on twin brothers who, when sent to stay with their mother, are shocked to find her covered in bandages after a recent procedure. As her behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and unusual, the brothers become convinced that she is an imposter.

Their suspicion sets off a roller-coaster of emotional mind games and misunderstandings between mother and her children that eventually explodes with irreparable and heartbreaking consequences.

Matt Sobel is directing the movie from a script by Kyle Warren. David Kaplan, Joshua Astrachan, Valery Guibal and Nicolas Brigaud-Robert are producing. The original film's directors Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz serve alongside Naomi as executive producers.
