Alcalde to Direct Who Can Kill a Child Remake

I told you to clean up your rooms!!!Sometimes it is just a better idea to stay on the mainland. If you’re new to a certain area, don’t go gallivanting off with your spouse to some mysterious island or cornfield where adults are strangely absent. It never bodes well.

Bloody Disgusting is reporting that David Alcalde, director of the short “Happy Birthday to You”, will be at the helm of the remake of Narciso Ibáñez Serrador’s disturbing Who Can Kill a Child? (review). This info also appears on IMDB with Alcalde getting screenplay credit with David Muñoz. The title, which could change, is listed as In the Playground. It isn’t really as snappy, eh?

The original film was based off a novel by Juan José Plans, but it changed around a few things and omitted the cause of the children’s madness all together. Does this mean Mr. Alcalde and crew may try to make a more faithful adaptation? Only time will tell.

    Man, I’ve got to wonder what chance this is going to have of either getting made or picked up. People still don’t want anything to do with killer kids or kids getting killed.

    It was only a matter of time before this movie got remade….It’s one of my favorite movies ever…I hope it’s not a disaster.
