What do these films have in common? If you answered that they have all been remade for US audiences, then give yourself a pat on the back, sir.
Yes, English speaking countries just LOVE to adapt films from all across the World. Hey, it’s better than having to sit through those darned pesky subtitles, right? Ahem… However, this trend shows no signs of slowing down at all, particularly with proposed remakes of Troll Hunter and Martyrs still in the works.
So with that in mind, let’s take a look at the latest English language “reimagining”, Stake Land director Jim Mickle’s reworking of Jorge Michel Grau’s cannibal flick We Are What We Are (Somo Lo Que Hay).
Screen Dailyare reporting the news that Riley Keough (Jack & Diane), Julia Garner (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Bill Sage (American Psycho) and Wyatt Russell (Cowboys & Aliens), have all signed up to appear in the film.
As per Screen Daily,
Keough and Garner will play a pair of sisters who are secluded from mainstream society.
Filming begins on May 29th and the film is expected in early 2013.
