Universal Running With the Cat People Again


This time it’s set in Miami

Sources tell Shock that Universal Home Entertainment is developing a new Cat People film with producer Aaron Ryder.

Ravel Centeno-Rodgriguez (The Thirteenth Floor) penned one draft of the script before Todd Stein was called in to rewrite the project.

The story follows the last two surviving “cat people” in the world who have been busy feasting off the male population in Miami. They seek a Cat Man to mate with to ensure the future of their kind.

Cat People was first produced in 1942 by producer Val Lewton and director Jacques Tourneur (a sequel was also produced The Curse of the Cat People in 1944). Universal revisited the property 40 years later and kicked up the sex appeal with another interpretation by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver).
