Stake Land director Jim Mickle is set to sink his teeth into a remake of cult cannibal picture We What We Are (one of my favorite films of 2010), Paris-based Memento Films International has announced.
Mickle will transpose Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s picture about a family of cannibals from its original setting of Mexico City, to a poor part of the Catskills region in New York State. Principal photography starts in June.
“It’s a cool challenge to do justice to Jorge’s story, but also explore things from an unexpected angle,” said Mickle, who is writing the script with Nick Damici.
Andrew Corkin of New York-based Uncorked Productions (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Afterschool) and Bolivian director/producer Rodrigo Bellott (Sexual Dependency) are producing alongside MFI’s Nicholas Shumaker and Linda Moran and Rene Bastian of Belladonna Productions, who produced Mickle’s first two films.
