Wrong Turn remake from original writer in development

https://deadline.com/2018/10/wrong-t...oy-1202482537/




EXCLUSIVE: Constantin Film is remaking the West Virginia cannibals movie Wrong Turn, a franchise which kicked off in 2003 with a theatrical release via Fox and spawned another five films, the last being in 2014. The franchiseís creator Alan McElroy has returned to pen the script, and Mike P. Nelson, who recently helmed Orion Classicsí sci-fi thriller The Domestics, is directing.


The updated version is described as a timely and topical meditation on society and its issues. A cross-country hiking expedition puts a group of friends in the land of an inclusive society, where they soon discover they are under a different rule of law, and may not be the victims they thought they were.

Constantin Filmís Robert Kulzer will produce, and Martin Moszkowicz will executive produce. Producer Robert Kulzer said, ďAlanís re -interpretation of his own work and Mikeís vision are a frightening reflection of our world today: one personís American dream is anotherís worst nightmare.Ē

McElroy has built a career in the genre sphere, beginning with Halloween 4 script. He went on to write the cult classic Spawn, an early draft of the billion-dollar franchise Resident Evil, Tekken, and recently episodes of The Vampire Diaries and The Night Shift. He is repped by Gersh and Writ Large.

The Domestics marked Nelsonís solo feature directorial debut and the pic starred Kate Bosworth. He is represented by ICM, Writ Large, and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.

John Papsidera, known for Dunkirk, Westworld and Jurassic World, among many others, is casting the film. He previously worked with Nelson on The Domestics.

I’m sure it’ll be as good as all the sequels...

2, 3 and 4 IMO were actually entertaining straight to video sequels.

5 and 6 were easily the worst. 6 was absolutely the worst of the entire series.

4 had this gorgeous Canadian actress named Jenny Pudavick

I agree about 2 and 3 actually being pretty good movies, especially the 2nd one. I actually think that one is the best in the series. There's much worse franchises out there...That said, I still haven't seen 4 or 5, and I didn't even know their was a sixth one...

The original is actually one of my favorite horror movies.

Yeah 2 was really good. I think that I have seen up until at least 5, but I'll be damned if I can remember any of them past 2.

Of all the good-looking women in the franchise, I wouldn't have singled her out. I don't think she was even the best looking one in that movie.

I'm sure I've seen at least the first five, but they pretty much run together. Cannibals, attractive women, occasional nudity--you know what to expect.

So yeah, I'll see this some October.

I don't understand why they think they need to remake this movie.

Been there...done that...do something else...
