"Hotel Del Luna" American remake in the works

Skydance Television is adapting Korean fantasy drama Hotel Del Luna as a series after teaming with CJ ENM, the studio behind Oscar-winning Parasite.

Altered Carbon showrunner Alison Schapker, who has an overall deal with Skydance, will oversee the adaptation.

It comes after CJ ENM invested in Skydance earlier this year and the two companies struck a deal to develop and produce projects.

CJ ENM subsidiary Studio Dragon recently established a U.S. branch, and Hotel Del Luna is one of a number of projects that the companies are working on.

Hotel Del Luna, which was directed by Oh Chung-hwan and Kim Jung-hyun and written by Hong Jeong-eun and Hong Mi-ran, aired in 2019 on tvN and was produced by Studio Dragon. It is a fantasy drama that features an elite hotelier who becomes the manager of Hotel Del Luna, a mystical hotel that only caters to spirits at night, after stumbling upon a fateful event.
