"The Hunter" Remake in the Works, Director Announced

 

The original 1983 Tony Scott-directed film The Hunger is pretty much everything you would expect from a film that co-starred David Bowie. Course, even Bowie found the film excessive (despite his pride in the film) once quoted as saying "I must say, there's nothing that looks like it on the market. But I'm a bit worried that it's just perversely bloody at some points." Advertised as an erotic vampire film, and based on the 1981 novel of the same name written by Whitley Strieber, the story focused on a love triangle develops between a beautiful yet dangerous vampire, her cellist companion, and a gerontologist. The original was particularly noted for groundbreaking special effects created by make-up artist Dick Smith (who had previously worked on The Exorcist) while, on more unique note, became popular among the Goth subculture. Can the announced remake stand on it's own given the impact the original had?

But in any case, the film is getting remade with director Angela Robinson in final talks to helm the film. Nothing else is known about the project beyond the script being written by Jessica Sharzer. The film is set up over at Warner Bros. Pictures. Stay tuned!
