Jar City getting remade

In a depressing but rather unsurprising bit of news further proving that Hollywood is somehow trying to shield Americans from the fact that other countries make movies too, and good ones at that, acclaimed 2006 Icelandic cop thriller Jar City (original title Mýrin) is getting an English-language remake, courtesy of (ugh) screenwriter Michael Arlen Ross (Turistas/Paradise Lost). Now did the original film (trailer above) actually ever get a proper release in the US? No, of course not, why do you ask?
