- Jeremy Lovering (In Fear) has reporetedly turned in a treatment to the producers, saying the following in a recent interview: "I'm really nervous about it, for obvious reasons. The original is an extraordinarily good film, and I’ve tried to take a kind of alternative point of view—doing the scenes you don’t see, the ones in between those that are in the film. THE CHANGELING has such iconic, much-copied sequences, and obviously loads of directors, from James Wan to [THE WOMAN IN BLACK’s] James Watkins and a whole bunch of others, happily acknowledge THE CHANGELING as a massively influential film. It’s the same producers [as the original] who want to make it, and it has been a very interesting process, but I’m still trying to decide whether it’s the right thing to do or not."
- Despite no real movement with the project in years, the original producers are apparently still interested in moving forward with the right script.
- Guillermo del Toro was involved as producer in the early development stages many years ago.
- Apparently more than four scripts have been turned down.
- Focus Features was going to release this.
- Original producer Joel B. Michaels was also developing this.
- When Peter Medak was rumored to be returning to direct, he expressed his disinterest in the use of CGI-effects for the ghost(s) as he feels having the impression a spirit is there is more effective than actually seeing it.
- Original director Peter Medak was once rumored to be helming this remake.
- No relation to director Clint Eastwood's film starring Angelina Jolie.
- This is a remake of the 1980 Peter Medak horror film with the same name.
