Boy oh boy, I really hate seeing this, but here goes. The WRONG TURN franchise, which began in 2003 with the Eliza Dushku starrer is being remade already by the original’s creator.
Constantin Films and creator Alan McElroy have announced they will be rebooting the film with more topical and timely societal issues.
Mike P. Nelson, who recently helmed Orion Classics’ sci-fi thriller The Domestics, is directing.
Wrong Turn gave birth to another five sequels about West Virginia cannibals that preyed on unsuspecting folks who ventured into their woodland home.
According to sources, the updated version is described as a timely and topical meditation on society and its issues. A cross-country hiking expedition puts a group of friends in the land of an inclusive society, where they soon discover they are under a different rule of law, and may not be the victims they thought they were.
Constantin Film’s Robert Kulzer will produce, and Martin Moszkowicz will executive produce. Producer Robert Kulzer said, “Alan’s reinterpretation of his own work and Mike’s vision are a frightening reflection of our world today: one person’s American dream is another’s worst nightmare.”
This needless remake is set to be released sometime in 2020.
