A few weeks back, it was revealed that Fox Searchlight would be remaking Demián Rugna's Terrified (now streaming on Shudder) with Guillermo del Toro on board to produce. Deadline reports today that Sacha Gervasi has been set to write the script. Gervasi's previous works include The Terminal and Hitchcock.
Rugna, who wrote and directed the original film, will be directing the remake.
In the film, “When strange events occur in a neighborhood in Buenos Aires, a doctor specializing in the paranormal, her colleague, and an ex police officer investigate further. The results are horrifying and the evil must be stopped before it spreads.”
We'll keep Crypt Teaze readers updated on the project as more details become available. In the meantime, check out Terrified's trailer below.
