Really liked the remake and am anxiously awaiting this one. I'm glad that Michael Bailey Smith will be back, though I will miss his kick-ass Pluto... Very Happy

I didn't like the needless remake and don't plan to see this.

I just ask for no repeat of the dog getting a flashback.

I can see this being very Devil's Rejects-ish with the family on the run.

take this with a grain of salt: from IMDB, "Plot Outline: A group of National Guard trainees find themselves battling against a vicious group of mutants on their last day of training in the desert"

Do they turn in to mutants after they're bitten? It sounds like Dog Soldiers.

here's a little bit more info ...

Quote:
British director Michael J. Bassett, whose WILDERNESS has been winning raves at international genre festivals, will not be directing the Wes and Jonathan Craven-scripted HILLS HAVE EYES remake/sequel (premake?), as we previously reported. ďI met with Wes and they asked me, but Iím into another project and schedules didnít allow it,Ē Bassett, who will introduce WILDERNESS at Montrealís Fantasia festival this month, tells Fango. German-born director Martin (60 SECONDS) Weisz, who has helmed over 350 music videos (for such artists as Brandy, Puff Daddy, Korn, Live, Crazytown, Sisqo, Nickelback, Fuel, Mel B, JC Chasez, etc.) will now tackle the second HILLS. In addition, Pluto actor Michael Bailey Smith (pictured) will be returning in the follow-up (due next March from Fox Searchlight), even though his character died in the last desert outing; this time, Smith will play the mutantsí new leader. - fangoria.com

I'm not comfortable with any director other than Aja heading this project. The man is brilliant when it comes to white knuckled, unrelenting tension. The idea of a video director tackling this makes me fearful that we'll get a pretty package that has no substance.

But, I'm not a hard ass about my opinions, and will, as always, give it a chance.

did the first remake do good?
i didn't enjoy it and i doubt i'll enjoy this one.
atleast if it's like the original sequel, there'll be some motorbike mayhem.

Oddly, I find less problem with sequels of remakes than I would with a remake of a sequel (oh PLEASE so not let anyone remake "The Hills Have Eyes 2"). At least with a sequel the screenwriter should have to work a bit to differentiate it.

I am not saying that it will be better than any given remake, or even a good movie. Hell it could be the worst movie ever, or (more doubtfully) the best movie ever. I just like the idea that it is theoretically more of an attempt at originality.
