It was announced back in 2008 that Rogue Pictures was to remake David Moreau, Xavier Palud’s awesome French home invasion slasher Them (Ils) as Six. Nothing ever came of it and now StudioCanal has landed the rights tapping commercials helmer David Alcalde to direct.
The original concerned a young married couple living in an isolated home who are terrorized by hooded assailants over the course of one terrifying night.
One of the most respected commercials directors working out of both Spain and Mexico, Alcalde has over 200 spots to his credit. His short film “Happy Birthday to You” won Screamfest in 2006 and was well-received at the San Sebastian and Slamdance Film Festivals. Helmer was previously attached to direct Gold Circle Films’ remake of the Spanish horror film Who Can Kill a Child?
