A while ago, we reported on the Soska sosters remaking David Cronenberg’s RABID and we now have further details on the film. A71Entertaiment has aquired Canadian rights to the remake and the film will be going into production in 2018!
Jen and Sylvia Soska:
"It’s a tremendous honor to be reimagining Rabid. Ten years into his career, David reimagined The Fly, and it was perhaps his most successful film. Now, 10 years into our directing careers, we take on his 1977 classic”.
"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."
We will keep you updated on this remake as more details become available!
In the meantime, you can buy Cronenberg’s original classic on Collector's Edition Blu-ray HERE!
