If we thought that the reactions to plans for a remake of The Night Of The Hunter were fairly negative, we can only imagine the response to word that someone thinks it might be a good plan to remake 2001 Nicole Kidman horror The Others.

Next year marks 20 years since director Alejandro Amenabar sent shivers down our collective spines with the film, which sees Kidman as Grace, a war widow who hides her children away in an isolated mansion due to a rare disease characterized by photosensitivity. The arrival of three mysterious servants unlocks the house’s terrifying secrets...

For those who have not seen it, we'll say no more other than: see it! As for the planned new version, it's a result of Sentient Entertainment splashing cash to buy the remake rights and aiming to switch the story to the present day.

"I am honored to be able to work on my favorite horror film of all time, The Others, and to bring this reimagining to the big screen for new audiences," says Sentient's Renee Tab. "It is almost eerie and uncanny how timely the themes are today: self-isolation, paranoia and fear, and of course the intense desire to protect our children and ourselves from harm. We look forward to unraveling the layers behind lead character Grace, whose pain and demons draw viewers into a truly compassionate journey."
