One of the best damned indie films you’re ever likely to see, Vincenzo Natalie’s Cube, is getting the remake treatment as THR is reporting that Saman Kesh, the up-and-coming director who caught the town’s attention with his short Controller, is attached to direct Cubed, a re-imagining of the movie.
Roy Lee is producing along with Jon Spaihts, best known as the co-writer of Prometheus and the in-development Chris Pratt-Jennifer Lawrence sci-fi drama Passengers.
Using the original setup of seven strangers trapped in a giant cube-like structure, Cubed is described as a sci-fi survival thriller about artificial intelligence, humanity, and the birth of a new “digital” race.
Philip Gawthorne is writing the script based off of Kesh’s original take. Adam Stone is overseeing the project for Vertigo.
