Craven to Produce "People Under the Stairs" Remake

by | April 21, 2007 | Comments

Under his new deal with Rogue Pictures, Wes Craven is going to continue producing remakes of his own movies like "The Hills Have Eyes" and "Last House on the Left." Though IMDB is listing a "Shocker" remake, Craven thinks another early ’90s horror remake will come first.

"The two films we did with Universal way back there, ‘Shocker’ and ‘The People Under the Stairs,’ are natural because Rogue Pictures is part of [Universal,]" said Craven. "I think the one more likely to be done after we do ‘Last House’ would be ‘People Under the Stairs.’ And I’m not sure why but we’ve found a couple of directors who really want to remake that. That would be more likely. But there’s a limited amount of us. Marianne Maddalena‘s producing all these and we don’t want to kill her so we’ll probably do one and a quarter a year, one 1/3 a year."

The original featured a thieving teenager running around the house of horrors of an inbred couple who kidnapped children to make their perfect nuclear family. Full of social commentary about the time, a new "People" would have to be updated.

"The funny thing is we’re back into another Bush era. There was more in that era of Bush Sr. of the haves and the have nots way down at the bottom and cutting social services and stuff. This Bush is so obsessed with the war that it’s not quite the same template but we’ve had a couple directors give some interesting ideas so we’ll see."
