BTF founders Ricardo Coeto and Francisco Cordero will produce the series while FilmSharks’ Guido Rud and Cerezo executive produce.
“We are honored to bring an unimaginable remake for the Spanish-speaking audience,” said BTF Media’s Ivonne Vela, adding: “It is incredible how a story written 20 years ago is still resonating today: Themes such as self-isolation, paranoia and fear, together with the intense desire to protect our children and ourselves from harm are more current than ever.”
If it’s been a while, or if you’ve yet to experience the pulse-pounding terror of The Others (written and directed by Alejandro Amenábar) check out the trailer and synopsis below.
Grace (Nicole Kidman), the devoutly religious mother of Anne (Alakina Mann) and Nicholas (James Bentley), moves her family to the English coast during World War II. She awaits word on her missing husband while protecting her children from a rare photosensitivity disease that causes the sun to harm them. Anne claims she sees ghosts, Grace initially thinks the new servants are playing tricks but chilling events and visions make her believe something supernatural has occurred.
