Shooting could now happen this fall, to give the film a more suitable feel and atmosphere to the film, but location hasn’t been decided on yet.
The film has been described as a stand-alone film and will not be a remake or a reboot. Marcus Dunstan will be directing from a screenplay written by Patrick Melton (Saw, The Colletor).
