When we last reported on it, Sony’s Stage 6 was set to release David Ondaatje’s remake of The Lodger on December 31st, though we had no idea in what theatrical capacity. As of today, however, things have changed!
So, what is better than strippers? Free strippers? Nah. Strippers without drug habits? Meh. Zombie strippers with a hankering for human flesh? Thank you, Sony!!!
Sony’s Stage 6, their low budget horror arm, has got some serious casting for the upcoming remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lodger, which is one of those few remakes no one seems to get too angry about. Is it because they’re saying it’s actually a re-adaptation of the book by Marie Belloc Lowndes that inspired Hitchcock rather than a straight remake? Cause they’re saying the same thing about The Birds too, you know...
It’s not the first time it’s happened, both John Brahm and Hugo Fregonese have tackled them in the past, so it shouldn't be surprising that another remake of Alfred Hitchock’s The Lodger is being planned, this time under the eye of writer/director David Ondaatje, according to the hounds at Production Weekly.
