French Horror LIVID to Receive English-Language Remake

2011 French horror gets remake treatment.

French distribution company SND has announced plans to move forward with its English language re-make of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s 2011 horror ‘Livid.’

Screenwriter David Birke has been set the task of penning the remake, which revolves around a young home nursing aide who works in a remote country estate and discovers that her comatose patient may have hidden her fortune somewhere in the house. The nursing aide returns with her friends to search for the loot, and they become trapped in the house with an old woman who may not be as sick as she appeared.

Doug Davison of Quadrant Pictures (‘The Strangers’) and Robert Léger will produce. Lionel Uzan of SND will oversee the project.
