There will also be a new script redone by writer Michael Starrbury and the film is still looking to start production next year.
Yann Demange is also working on an HBO series of David Cronenbergs movie Scanners so he is no new comer to horror. Demange also worked on the pilot epiosde for Lovecraft Country which really helped to set the dark tone of the series on HBO Max.
