‘The Others’ Remake Coming From Sentient Entertainment

It seems like everything old is new again as Deadline is reporting that Sentient Entertainment has won the remake rights for the hit horror film The Others. Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the film.

According to the source, the plan is to modernize the story and is said to already be attracting top talent.

Sentient’s Renee Tab told Deadline that “I am honored to be able to work on my favorite horror film of all time, The Others, and to bring this reimagining to the big screen for new audiences. It is almost eerie and uncanny how timely the themes are today: self-isolation, paranoia and fear, and of course the intense desire to protect our children and ourselves from harm. We look forward to unraveling the layers behind lead character Grace, whose pain and demons draw viewers into a truly compassionate journey.”

Released in 2001, The Others was written and directed by Alejandro Amenabar and starred Nicole Kidman, Fionnula Flanagan, Christopher Eccleston, Elaine Cassidy, Eric Sykes, Alakina Mann and James Bentley. The film garnered over $209 million at the box office on a budget of under $20 million.

The film follows Grace (Nicole Kidman) a mother that moves into a new house with her two photosensitive children in Jersey. When a series of inexplicable events occur, Grace starts believing that her house is haunted.

Keep it locked to Horror News Network for the latest on The Others remake.
