Danish actress and filmmaker Rie Rasmussen has been hired to helm a remake David Cronenberg’s 1975 first feature film “Shivers” for TAJJ Media and Baker’s Bunk 11.
Ian Driscoll’s screenplay updates the story of a parasite outbreak that turns apartment complex residents into sex fiends. The new one will be updated for a “post HIV digital world”.
The original film was also called “They Came From Within” in certain countries.
Jeff Sackman and Michael Baker will produce the project which aims to begin filming in February. Casting is now underway.
