Soska Sisters’ RABID Remake Begins Filming
The Soska sisters’ remake of David Cronenberg’s Rabid began filming today. Fangoria broke the news over on Twitter, and you can check out their tweet below. On top of that, the sisters themselves posted a pic to Instagram marking the occasion, and you can check that out right over HERE.
Rabid is directed by the Soskas from a script they co-wrote with John Serge. Michael Walker, Paul Lalonde, and John Vidette are producing. David Gilbery and Charles Dorfman serve as Executive Producers. Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw) will be taking the lead in the film originally played by Marilyn Chambers.
Drawing influence from the original movie, the remake will follow Rose, a young woman who, after an accident leaves her scarred beyond recognition, undergoes a radical untested stem-cell treatment. While turning Rose into the belle of the ball, the experimental transformation comes at a price.
