EXCLUSIVE: Screen Gems is developing a remake of See No Evil, the 1971 Columbia Pictures horror movie starring Mia Farrow. Mike Scannell will write the new script, and Unbroken Pictures’ Bryan Bertino and Adrienne Biddle will produce. Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper and EVP Production Scott Strauss will oversee for the studio.
The original See No Evil starred Farrow as a young blind woman returns to her uncle’s English country home where she’s visiting to discover her family murdered and the killer still in the house. Richard Fleischer directed Brian Clemens’ script.
Screen Gems and Unbroken are already partnered on the horror thriller He’s Out There, also penned by Scannell and to be directed by Dennis Iliadis. Bertino is also working on the screenplay for The Strangers 2, a sequel to the 20o8 pic he wrote and directed. He is in post on the fantasy horror film Stephanie starring Frank Grillo and the horror pic There Are Monsters starring Zoe Kazan and Ella Ballentine.
Scannell, Bertino and Biddle are repped by UTA.
