Professional remake house Platinum Dunes and Universal’s genre arm (Rogue Pictures) have signed a deal — and the result will be (at least) four more horror remakes. On deck are redos of "The Hitcher," "Near Dark," "The Changeling," and "The Birds."

From Variety: "Platinum, which has already completed production on a Rogue remake of "The Hitcher" for April release, will kick off the deal by remaking "Near Dark," the 1987 pic about a cowboy wooed into joining a roving band of vampires. Samuel Bayer, helmer of such videos as Nirvana’s "Smells Like Teen Spirit," is attached to direct. Matt Venne is writing the script, and Charles Meeker and Amy Kaufman also produce. Production begins early next year.

The producer also will steer a remake of 1987 pic "The Changeling," which Rogue already had on its development roster. Separately, Platinum Dunes is remaking Hitchcock’s "The Birds" for Universal Pictures."
