Studiocanal has announced their plans on remaking the 2006 French film THEM (also known as "Ils") for American audiences. According to Variety, the studio has hired commercials director David Alcalde to direct and is being produced by Adrian Guerra (Buried, Red Lights).
The twisted plot follows Lucas and Clementine, who live peacefully in their isolated country house until one night, when a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night.
David Alcalde is one of the most respected commercial directors in both Mexico and Spain, having crafted well over 200 spots throughout his career. His short film "Happy Birthday to You" won a Screamfest award in 2006 and his name was also previously attached to direct a remake of the Spanish horror film "Who Can Kill a Child?"
