Hollywood loves remakes and this time it’s the turn of classic 1973 Venice-set horror Don’t Look Now.
Directed by the great Nicolas Roeg and based on the novel by Daphne de Maurier (The Birds, Rebecca), the supernatural film followed a couple (played by Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie) who are grieving their daughter. Some time later in Venice, the couple meet two Catholics nuns, one of whom claims to be clairvoyant and is in contact with their late daughter. She then brings an ominous message from the afterlife claiming that their lives are in danger.
The film was controversial upon its release for an explicit sex scene but also lives on in the hearts of horror fans because of its chilling atmosphere and shocking twist ending (we don’t spoil it for you if you haven’t seen it already!).
Studio Canal is the studio behind this particular remake, with Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman (of the Liam Neeson thriller Non-Stop) producing. There’s no writer or director attached at this point.
