What the world needs now is another remake like it needs a hole in the head. That isn't stopping Wes Craven. He is plowing straight ahead with his The Last House on the Left redo. According to Variety, he has hired Dennis Iliadis to direct and Adam Alleca to write the horror update.
Craven himself is producing the new film with Marianne Maddalena and Sean S. Cunningham. According to Craven, the film will retain its original flavor. Released in 1972, The Last House on the Left revolved around a couple of killers who unknowingly take refuge with one of their victims' parents.
Wes plans on making the film more realistic this time around. He stated that, "The first one was arch, especially in relation to the killers."
Craven's last remake centered on his 1977 flick The Hills Have Eyes for Fox Atomic. He claims that part of the reason he is revisiting his earlier films is because, "Why not?"
Shooting on The Last House on the Left remake will begin early next year.
