Sentient Entertainment, a California-based company that specializes in representing international filmmakers, has acquired the rights to remake “The Others”, a 2001 horror sensation starring Nicole Kidman.
The movie, written and directed by a Spanish-Chilean director Alejandro Amenabar left the audience speechless two decades ago. The claustrophobic and masterfully unsettling film told a story of a woman whose children suffered from a rare disease: any exposure to sunlight would kill them. The family had to live their life self-isolating in a giant mansion in the middle of a remote island, surrounded by permanent darkness. And they soon started to realize that they were not alone.
According to Deadline, Renee Tab (“Feud: Betty and Joan”, “Maps to The Stars”) is set to produce the remake. He already expressed his excitement and called the main themes of the movie — “self-isolation, paranoia and fear” — extremely relevant.
It is currently unknown who is eyed to direct the remake or star in it, but the viewers can expect a modernized story (the original movie was set during the World War II period).
