According to Production Weekly, Wes Craven's classic Horror movie "The Hills have Eyes" is getting a Remake. The remake is scheduled to begin filming late April for nine weeks.
Wes Craven, who wrote and directed the original, will produce for Dimension Films and Alexandre Aja ("Haute Tension" aka "High Tension") will direct. Alexandre Aja will also write the script together with Gregory Lavasseur, with whom he also wrote the script for "High Tension".
The original movie tells the story of the Carters, a mildly dysfunctional extended family led by patriarch "Big Bob" Carter (Russ Grieve), as they travel across the California desert in search of an inherited silver mine. When a broken axle leaves them stranded in the middle of a former nuclear testing site, their attempts to find help lead them unwittingly into the territory of a savage family of cave-dwelling cannibals, the apparent progeny of the bearlike Jupiter (James Whitworth) and an abducted prostitute.
Jupiter's eldest son Pluto (professional movie weirdo Michael Berryman) leads the first brutal attack on the defenseless Carters who, through necessity, are driven to equally extreme measures in order to survive. Though the film is not overtly bloody, the scenes depicting this confrontation are rendered with an unflinching directness, and the violations visited on the Carters are so brutal as to make the survivors' regression into savagery all the more convincing.
