French Horror Pic 'Livid' Getting An English Language Remake

With French filmmakers continuing to serve up some of the most extreme, high concept horror fare in recent memory, it seems all their English language speaking counterparts continue to do is offer low budget cheapie fright flicks or remakes. And true to form, here comes another.

With French filmmakers continuing to serve up some of the most extreme, high concept horror fare in recent memory, it seems all their English language speaking counterparts continue to do is offer low budget cheapie fright flicks or remakes. And true to form, here comes another.

SND Films has announced that "Livid," the latest from "Inside" directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, is getting primed for a remake, with David Birke ("Gacy," "Dahmer") to adapt. The film, which opened last fall in its native France, has been doing the festival circuit for much of the last year. Described as a "fairytale horror" film, the story centers on a young woman and her friends who break into an old mansion and unleash some dark and spooky stuff in the process. 

The Weinsteins' genre arm Dimension seemed pretty hot on the movie last summer and picked up the U.S. rights but no release date or any other movement has happened since. No word yet on the director of this redo, but we don't expect anyone major will be coming along. And we'll see how far it moves along. As you might recall, a remake of "Martyrs" is still percolating (we guess) though not much has been heard since Daniel Stamm ("The Last Exorcism") signed on to direct more than a year ago.
