Dangerous Games

On the one hand, the idea of seeing a classic like The Most Dangerous Game remade is enough to make me queasy. On the other hand, the concept of a man hunting down humans for sport is loose enough to have been tackled more than a few times, and, for as wonderful as it is, Ernest Schoedsack and Irving Pichel’s 8-decade-old thriller is most certainly a product of its time. Plus, Fay Wray’s “other” 1932 film has been remade twice, so how’s that for karma? Creating a new spin will be a challenge as director Steven LaMorte shoots Dangerous Games this August from a script by J. Amanda Sabater. According to the production, the villainous Count Zaroff is now modern-day Colonel Zaroff (who still has a sweet man-hunting lease on a private island), and the protagonist is the host of an outdoorsman reality show. Zaroff will be played by Eric Etebari (The Lincoln Lawyer), the hunting show host Rick Rainsford will be played by WWE star John Hennigan (aka John Morrison), and the female lead Anna will be played by newcomer Michelle Taylor.
