P2 Director Helms “Maniac” Remake

Franck Khalfoun, who helmed the 2007 Wes Bentley and Rachel Nichols car park thriller “P2”, is now set to direct a remake of William Lustig’s 1980 low-budget slasher “Maniac” reports Bloody Disgusting.

The original followed a serial killer seeking revenge for his abusive upbringing by stalking and killing various young women in New York City. He begins a relationship with a beautiful photographer, but his vile compulsions remain.

Alexandre Aja and Gregory Levasseur have penned the script, the pair previously worked with Khalfoun on “P2”.
