THE ENTITY: James Wan Producing Horror Remake

James Wan, the horror movie maestro behind the ‘Insidious,’ ‘Saw,’ and ‘The Conjuring’ franchises, is reportedly planning a remake of the 1982 supernatural horror classic ‘The Entity.’

Directed by Sidney J. Furie, the original film starred Barbara Hershey as a young single mother with three children, who has her life turned upside down when she begins to be attacked in her bed each night, violated by a spectral rapist.

Wan will produce the supernatural tale alongside Roy Lee, with ‘The Conjuring’ screenwriters Chad and Carey Hayes on board to pen the script.

Furie’s film was adapted from Frank De Felitta’s disturbing bestseller of the same name, itself based on documented real-life events that happened to a California woman in 1974.
