Lionsgate acquired remake rights to the Russian horror movie The Bride (Nevesta) back in October, with Chad and Carey Hayes, known for writing The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, attached to produce alongside original producer Vlad Severtsev.
Today we’ve learned, via THR, that Sarah Conradt has been hired to write the English-language remake, centered on a turn-of-the-century bride who returns from the dead.
Svyatoslav Podgayevsky directed the original.
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. She is surrounded by strange people and starts witnessing strange, terrible visions as his family prepares her for a mysterious traditional Slavic wedding ceremony. More than the wedding preparations, can she survive the next few days?
