BRAD PITT SNIFFING AFTER THE MAID

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston's production company, Plan B, is interested in remake rights to Singapore's hit horror flick THE MAIDBrad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston's production company, Plan B, is already producing THE DEPARTED - Martin Scorsese's remake of INFERNAL AFFAIRS.

Now Plan B is reportedly interested in remake rights to Singapore's hit horror flick, THE MAID. Given that the movie is about a Filipino maid becoming entangled in unfamiliar Chinese supernatural folklore I'm not sure what angle an American remake can take.

Oh, wait, it could be a nice American girl who becomes a maid for a Singaporean family (?!?) and gets terrorized by ooky Chinese traditions and folklore. Ah, the racist angle. Kewl!

I'm sure Brad just liked the premise and will transpose it to the U.S. (It will make more money that way than if it was set in Singapore.) Perhaps a Latina/Catholic maid in an Orthodox Jewish household? I can see new horizones of offensiveness opening up.
