Inside, Another French Extremism Film Gets Reboot
An American adaption to the film “Inside” is definitely in the works. The production team will feature director Miguel Angel Vivas. His film credits include “Kidnapped”, “Extinction” and “I’ll See You in my Dreams”. On board as Producers will be:
- Adrian Guerra. (“Buried”, “Red Lights”and “The Gunman”)
- Nostromo Pictures’ Nuria Valls (“Buried”, “Grand Piano”, “[REC] 2”)
- Writers Jaume Balaguero (“[REC]”, [REC] 2”, “Darkness”)
- Manu Diez (“[REC] 2”, [REC] 4: Apocalypse”, “The Nun”).
The original French horror “Inside”, also known as “A L’Interieur”, released in 2007. The directors were Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury. The duo introduced audiences to a tour de force of French extremism. The American reboot to “Inside” will be directed by: Miguel Angel Vivas.
The synopsis for “Inside” A.k.a. “A L’Interieur” reads as follows:
Four months following the death of her husband, a woman on the brink of motherhood is tormented in her home by a strange woman who wants her baby.
The upside to this whole ordeal is Rachel Nichols (“Star Trek”, “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”). She will star the lead role in the “Inside” American adaptation. This is good news for the production team. Nichols has become quite a success with her work. “Star Trek”, “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”, “Conan the Barbarian”, among many others.
Now, comes the concern of this whole ordeal. Bloody Disgusting shares the movie cover art for the “Inside” adaptation. It takes a more minimal graphic effect than the original, more brutal, cover art. That alone raises some concern. BD reports the reason for these Hollywood adaptations. It’s to replicate the commercial success of female-driven genre movies from Spain. That makes sense. The only question is, are they replicating the success?
An American adaptation of “Martyrs” released in January of 2016. I’ve done a comparison on the trailers of the remake and the original French horror, released in 2008. When you look at the trailers, you see how bad the production team for the American adaptation does. It’s attempt at replicating the success of the original film fails. It fails in its approach, it fails in its delivery, and it bombs in the reviews.
Will the same happen for the American “Inside” adaptation? I guess we will find out soon enough.
