One of the best damned haunted house films ever made, The Entity (that is, before it went to hell in a giant refrigerator during the last 10 minutes), is getting the remake treatment; and given the talent behind it… we’re totally happy about it!
THR reports that James Wan will produce The Entity remake with brothers Chad and Carey Hayes on board to pen the script. The trio worked together in the same capacity on New Line’s 2013 The Conjuring. Roy Lee, another name in the horror world, will produce Entity with Wan.
The Entity purportedly told the story of Carla Moran, a single mom who was abused physically and sexually by a supernatural demon.
Barbara Hershey played Moran while Ron Silver played a doctor who believes the woman is actually abusing herself and experiencing delusions brought about by a troubled past. Also figuring into the proceedings were a young son, a boyfriend, and two parapsychologists.
Fox was the original distributor of the film.
