Screen Gems Remakes A Rec

Screen Gems will remake the 2007 Spanish-language horror thriller “Rec” reports Variety.

In the original film, directed by Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza, a downtown Los Angeles apartment building is quarantined after a mysterious deadly and highly contagious strain of rabies breaks out. A reporter and her cameraman are among those trapped inside.

The remake will be written and directed by John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle (“The Poughkeepsie Tapes”). Production will begin early next year.
