1971 horror film See No Evil, starring Mia Farrow and directed by Richard Fleischer, is getting a remake from Screen Gems.
The original film, also known as Blind Terror, starred Farrow as a woman who has been recently blinded, and who comes home from a date little realising that her family has been murdered, and that their bodies are lying everywhere…and that the killer is still out there. It’s not a classic on the same level as the Audrey Hepburn movie Wait Until Dark, but it’s got some solid chills in there, not to mention Mia Farrow.
Deadline reports that the film will be written by Mike Scannell, and will be produced by The Strangers‘ Bryan Bertino and Adrienne Biddle. Scannell wrote the script for The Last House On The Left director Dennis Illiadis’ latest, the awesomely titled He’s Out There.
Bertino is also pretty busy at the moment. As well as producing He’s Out There, he’s also a producer on Frank Grillo and Anna Torv horror Stephanie, he’s still trying to get The Strangers 2 made, and he’s currently directing the excellent Zoe Kazan in There Are Monsters.
