We Are What We Are Gets Remade

“Stake Land” director Jim Mickle will helm a remake of cult cannibal picture “We Are What We Are” at Memento Films International says Screen Daily.

Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s helmed the 2010 original about a family of cannibals in Mexico City. Mickle’s remake shifts the action to the poorer parts of New York State’s Catskills region.

Mickle and Nick Damici are writing the script while shooting kicks off in June. Andrew Corkin, Rodrigo Bellott, Nicholas Shumaker, Linda Moran and Rene Bastian are producing.
