Daniel Stamm (“The Last Exorcism”) has been signed to direct the English-language remake of violent French horror feature “Martyrs” reports 24 Frames.
Pascal Laugier helmed the original 2008 feature about Lucie and Anna, two orphans who are friends until Lucie goes on a murderous rampage to avenge abuse she seemingly suffered as a child.
Stamm says the remake won’t be as infamously nihilistic as the original, saying “The American approach [that I’m looking at] would go through all that darkness but then give a glimmer of hope. You don’t have to shoot yourself when it’s over.”
Stamm has also dismissed rumours of Kristen Stewart starring in the remake.
