There's a tool called Parrot developed by a lab at Notre Dame that does this:

Parrot is used to execute the child process, so that ptrace can used
to intercept the system calls. You do have to be careful, though --
you'll have to do things like write to a certain region's of the child
process's memory in order to mimic system calls like read().
