"Martyrs" Horror Film is Being Remade
From worstpreviews, Paramount Pictures has acquired a script by Mark Smith (Vacancy, The Hold in 3D) and set it up with Platinum Dunes. Now comes word that the new project is actually a remake of Pascal Laugier's "Martyrs" horror film.
"'Martyrs' is a remake of the French horror film that I wrote for Wyck Godfrey (Temple/Hill) who's producing the Twilight films among others," said Smith.
The original "Martyrs" shocked audiences for its unrelenting violent nature. It revolves around a young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child. That leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity.
