‘Livid’ is the Next Foreign Movie to Get an English-Language Remake

By  · Published on April 9th, 2012

From Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the directors of the brilliant movie Inside, Livid was an unfortunately scattered follow-up that could have used some serious reigning in. Rob was right to call it a “visually appealing mess of a movie.” Still, the potential is undeniably there.

In the film, a young woman is training to become a caregiver for several people – one of which is an elderly comatose woman living in a large mansion. The caregiver tells her friends so they can break in. What they find, gets a little sticky. For example, there’s a tea party

And now, SND Films is announcing they’ll be overseeing an English-language remake of the movie. They’ve hired David Birke (Gacy) to adapt which will be a test for a screenwriter who hasn’t quite proved himself in the feature world. He’s done work on serial killer flicks, but this particular piece is bound to be a bit more experimental and poetic than what he’s done before. At any rate, you can still see the original with subtitles (unless you speak French), but soon you’ll be able to see a version of it in English.
