Buffalo Bill, Pyro and Kathleen Quinlan in Aja's THE HILLS HAVE EYES remake!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some news on the remake of Wes Craven's THE HILLS HAVE EYES being done by Alexandre "HAUTE TENSION" Aja. It seems that 4 people have climbed into the family truckster and are in for a helluva time courtesy of inbred cannibalistic maniacs. We have Aaron Stanford (Pyro in X2), Kathleen Quinlan, Ted Levine ("It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again") and Vinessa Shaw (EYES WIDE SHUT and the masterpiece of drama LADYBUGS) now in the cast. Thinking about it, maybe Shaw is the good baby-saver cannibal family lady... who knows? Ted Levine could go either way, too. He's a great bad guy, but I could see him as the father as well. Now all they need is Scary Busey in there somewhere and it'll be a perfect remake! I love the original, but I'm curious to see what Aja does with the material. HAUTE TENSION is flawed, but so much of it was so right on...

Anyway, here's the excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter.

Aaron Stanford, Kathleen Quinlan, Ted Levine and Vinessa Shaw are set to star in the Fox Searchlight feature "The Hills Have Eyes" for writer-director Alexandre Aja. The project is a remake of the 1977 film written and directed by Wes Craven, who will produce the new version with his production partner Marianne Maddalena and Peter Locke. The film is headed for a shoot in Morocco this month. The story follows a vacationing family that makes a wrong turn in the desert and is terrorized by the inhabitants they encounter.
