Remakes are everywhere nowadays , so it's no real surprise to find out that current US horror wonderboy Eli Roth (Cabin Fever) is jumping onto the remake bandwagon by becoming attached to the remake of the 1956 chiller The Bad Seed.
The original film starred Patty McCormack as a seemingly innocent young girl who spends all of her days and nights thinking about murder.
Eli Roth: "The original was a great psychological thriller, and we are going to bastardize and exploit it, ramping up the body counts and killings. This is going to be scary, bloody fun, and we’re going to create the next horror icon, à la Freddy, Jason and Chucky. She’s this cunning, adorable kid who loves to kill, but also loves ’N Sync."
Roth currently has a very full schedule (and keeps appearing at all the horror film conventions as if he's got nothing on his plate!) with The Box (based on a short story by I Am Legend writer Richard Matheson) and self-penned horror flick Scavenger Hunt.
No scripter has been attached as of yet, but it's being produced by Strike Entertainment, who most recently remade Dawn of the Dead.
