American ‘Martyrs’ Remake Has Found Its Director



The LA Times broke the news early this morning that Daniel Stamm, the filmmaker behind this summer’s horror hit The Last Exorcism, will be getting behind the camera for the English-language remake of Martyrs. Pascal Laugier directed the original French flick that followed poor Lucie, now 25-years-old, as she sets out to get revenge on the people who attacked and permanently scarred her when she was only 10 years old. “‘Martyrs’ is very nihilistic. The American approach [that I’m looking at] would go through all that darkness but then give a glimmer of hope. You don’t have to shoot yourself when it’s over.” I’m not sure that’s what I want from the film, but again, the film’s finale is very much up to the director’s own personal religious interpretations. I guess the real question is whether or not Stamm is a God-fearing man or not.
