Dennis Iliadis will direct a remake of Wes Craven’s first film, The Last House on the Left, which Craven is producing for Rogue under his Midnight Pictures. Adam Alleca is on board to rewrite the script.
Variety says Craven is producing with Midnight cohort Marianne Maddalena and Sean S. Cunningham. The latter produced the 1972 original.
Craven said the remake will retain the spirit of the original, about killers who inadvertently seek refuge with the parents of one of their victims, but aim for a more realistic tone.
Craven expects to begin production on The Last House on the Left early next year.
