Jay Hernandez, Jennifer Carpenter and Columbus Short are starring in "Quarantined", according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film is a remake of the Spanish horror movie Rec that John Erick Dowdle is directing for Screen Gems.

Johnathon Schaech and Steve Harris also have been cast.

"Quarantined" centers on a downtown Los Angeles apartment building where a deadly strain of rabies breaks out. A reporter and her cameraman are among those trapped inside when the edifice and its residents are quarantined. Dowdle penned the screenplay with his brother Drew.

Showing just how fast Hollywood can remake a movie, Quarantine is a redo of movie that has yet to be released. Rec, by Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza, opens Nov. 23 in Spain.

Production begins immediately in Los Angeles.
