AceShowbiz - Nicole Kidman's period horror movie "The Others" is set for a modern retelling as the 20th anniversary of the film approaches.
The hit 2001 Alejandro Amenabar thriller centres on a widow and mother, who must be confined indoors due to a rare disease as an otherworldly force inhabits their home.
According to Deadline, the remake will be set in the present day.
"I am honored to be able to work on my favorite horror film of all time, 'The Others', and to bring this reimagining to the big screen for new audiences," producer Renee Tab says in a statement, noting the parallels the story has with the coronavirus pandemic.
"It is almost eerie and uncanny how timely the themes are today: self-isolation, paranoia and fear, and of course the intense desire to protect our children and ourselves from harm."
"We look forward to unraveling the layers behind lead character Grace, whose pain and demons draw viewers into a truly compassionate journey."
