Three years have passed by since we first heard that an English-language remake of Erlingur Thoroddsen’s 2017 Icelandic horror movie Rift was within the works, and now it seems to be just like the venture could lastly be heading towards manufacturing, with Thoroddsen writing and directing this new model of his story. Oscar-winning Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black is on board to provide the remake, which is a collaboration between Wayward Leisure and XYZ Movies.
Described as a gay-themed psychological horror film, the unique Rift informed the story of
two males whose damaged relationship is examined as they’re haunted by a supernatural entity woke up by their grief.
Right here’s one other synopsis that provides somewhat extra info:
Months after they broke up, Gunnar receives an odd cellphone name from his ex-boyfriend, Einar. He sounds distraught, like he’s about to do one thing horrible to himself. Gunnar drives as much as the secluded cabin the place Einar is holed up and shortly discovers that there’s extra happening than he imagined. As the 2 males come to phrases with their damaged relationship, another particular person appears to be lurking outdoors the cabin, eager to get in.
J. Todd Harris and Marc Marcum of Branded Footage Leisure will likely be producing the Rift remake alongside Black. Once we first heard about this remake, it was set to occur at Orion Footage, however that’s now not the case.
Along with the primary Rift, Thoroddsen additionally wrote and directed the 2016 horror movie Youngster Eater, and wrote Into the Darkish: Midnight Kiss. Out of all of Thoroddsen’s credit, Midnight Kiss is the one one I’ve seen, so I may need to hunt out the unique Rift and watch it earlier than the remake will get launched into the world.
We’ll maintain you up to date on the brand new Rift because it continues to maneuver ahead.
