Nicolas Roeg’s ‘Don’t Look Now’ And ’80s Cult Horror ‘The Entity’ Getting Remakes

Nicolas Roeg's 'Don't Look Now' And '80s Cult Horror 'The Entity' Getting Remakes

Don’t be angry, just accept it. Hollywood will always find ways take old things, as perfect as they may be, and put contemporary new clothes on them. All you can hope is that everyone involved endeavors to get it even half right.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Nicolas Roeg‘s classic, “Don’t Look Now,” will get a new coat of paint. The producers behind “The Last House On The Left” remake, “The Strangers,” “Non-Stop,” “The Gunman,” and “Project X” are driving this one for StudioCanal, so make of that what you will. They also helped bring “Coraline” to life, though that seems to be an outlier in the catalog of Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman. The plan is to find a studio for this before hiring writers and directors and that kind of stuff.

Meanwhile, “Furious 7“‘s billion dollar success story, James Wan, is going back to his horror roots and putting his producer weight behind a remake of “The Entity,” with Roy Lee joining him. “The Conjuring” writers, Chad and Carey Hayes, will pen the new script about a woman who believes she is being supernaturally sexually assaulted. We’ll see how this new version takes on that material, which is reportedly based on a true story.

So catch up with original  “Don’t Look Now” and “The Entity” first — we’ll give you a little help with the latter below.
