Earlier this week we shared a few clips from Jim Mickel’s well-regarded horror remake “We Are What We Are,” which is currently having a showing at this year’s Cannes.  Today brings another clip to us by way of Deadline and some surprising news about the future of this festival favorite.

“We Are What We Are” explores the dynamics of a family of cannibals as they try and band together after being struck by tragedy.  The clip, which you can watch below, presents a quiet moment between sisters Iris and Rose Parker.  While the film delves into the dark world of cannibalism, the clip presented here highlights some of the more relatable family drama.

And while we wait to see how the film is received at Cannes, Memento Film International seems to have a lot of faith in the project, revealing to Screen Daily that they had launched sales on a prequel and sequel to the upcoming film. 

AJ Annila (Jade Warrior) has been attached to direct the prequel, entitled “What We Were,” which will explore how the Parker parents, Frank and Emma, came to be a couple and what led to their cannibalistic tendencies. The film will mark AJ’s first English-language film.  Nick Damici, who worked on the remake  “We Are What We Are,” will draft the script for the prequel.

Meanwhile Jorge Michel Grau, who directed the original Mexican version of “We Are What We Are,” has signed on to helm the sequel. It’s a little early to talk about what the sequel will be about since the current film is still playing the festival circuit; however, they did share that it’ll start shooting in 2014.
