Jen and Sylvia Soska‘s Remake of David Cronenberg’s ‘Rabid’ Begins Filming in 2018



David Cronenberg’s Rabid

Jen and Sylvia Soska‘s remake of David Cronenberg’s 1977 body horror classic Rabid is set to begin shooting in early 2018. The Hollywood Reporter is also stating that A71 Entertainment has taken the Canadian rights to the film.

The remake will portray Rose, a young woman who, after an accident leaves her scarred beyond recognition, undergoes a radical untested stem cell treatment. While turning Rose into the belle of the ball, the experimental transformation comes at a price.

Michael Walker, Paul Lalonde and John Vidette of Back 40 Pictures are producing the updated picture.

It’s a tremendous honor to be re-imagining Rabid. Ten years into his career, David re-imagined The Fly and it was perhaps his most successful film. Now ten years into our directing careers, we take on his 1977 classic,” the Soska sisters said in a statement.

Jen and Sylvia Soska are repped by Chris Ridenhour and Sheryl Peterson at APA, managed by Andrew Wilson at Zero Gravity Management, and also Joel Vanderkloot at Nelson Davis.
