Lionsgate has acquired the remake rights to the Russian horror movie The Bride (Nevesta), THR reports.
Vlad Severtsev, the producer of the original movie, told the site that Chad and Carey Hayes, known for writing The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, will produce the remake alongside him.
The original film centers on a turn-of-the-century bride who returns from the dead to terrify a modern-day bride and her family.
It was written and directed by Svyatoslav Podgayevsky, also known for Queen of Spades: The Dark Rite.
The film was released in Russia in January and grossed $3.1 million and subsequently was released in several other territories.
In The Bride, Nastya is a young woman who travels with her soon to be husband to his family home. Upon their arrival, she can’t help but think that the visit may have been a horrible mistake.

More than the wedding preparations, can she survive the next few days?
