June 4, 2008 Amazing but true. Variety reports that classic sick flick "I Spit On Your Grave" is getting remade.
Don't expect it to be as graphic as the original.
"After seeing what was done with an R rating on films like Saw and Hostel, we think we can modernize this story, be competitive with what this marketplace expects and not have to aim for an NC-17 or X rating," CineTel prez Paul Hertzberg told Variety.
Although the original film was identified as having an "R" rating (note poster on right) it was never actually rated.
Hertzberg, Lisa Hansen, Jeff Klein, Alan Ostroff, Gary Needle and original filmmaker Meir Zarchi are exec producers.
