Oscar-winning screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin has been hired to write the DreamWorks adaptation of the Japanese cult hit Resurrection, tentatively titled Rainbow Bridge, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Rubin has already written an elaborate treatment for the project.
DreamWorks acquired remake rights to Resurrection, titled Yomigaeri in Japanese, last year. Akihiko Shiota's 2003 supernaturally themed pic centered on a town in which people who have been dead for decades come back to life. Instead of engaging in zombie behavior, though, the townspeople simply return to their normal lives as though nothing has changed.
