Once again a remake is on its way of a perfectly good foreign film that most American audience members are too lazy to watch because it has subtitles. Read on for the latest.
Screen Daily reports that Stake Land director Jim Mickle is set to sink his teeth into a remake of cult cannibal picture We Are What We Are (review here).
Mickle will transpose Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s picture about a family of cannibals from its original setting of Mexico City to a poor part of the Catskills region in New York state. Principal photography starts in June.
“It’s a cool challenge to do justice to Jorge’s story but also explore things from an unexpected angle,” said Mickle, who is writing the script with Nick Damici.
Andrew Corkin of New York-based Uncorked Productions (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Afterschool) and Bolivian director/producer Rodrigo Bellott (Sexual Dependency) are producing alongside MFI’s Nicholas Shumaker and Linda Moran and Rene Bastian of Belladonna Productions, who produced Mickle’s first two films.
