9 Cast in Hills Remake
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a whole bunch of actors have been confirmed for the HILLS HAVE EYES remake to be directed by Alexandre (HIGH TENSION) Aja. Aaron (X2's Pyro) Stanford and Vinessa (HOCUS POCUS) Shaw (pictured) will play Doug and Lynne Wood, the young couple portrayed by Martin Speer and Dee Wallace Stone in the original; Ted (SILENCE OF THE LAMBS) Levine is Big Bob Carter and Kathleen (EVENT HORIZON) Quinlan is his wife Ethel (Russ Grieve and Virginia Vincent originally); Emilie (LOST) de Ravin is Brenda Carter and Dan ('SALEM'S LOT) Byrd is Bobby Carter (Susan Lanier and Robert Houston originally). With perennial villain Levine as one of the heroes, who do they have playing the murderous hills family? So far, Robert Joy as Lizard, along with Billy Drago (another longtime bad-guy performer); Tom Bower is also in the cast.
The new HILLS, which Fox Searchlight is producing and will release next year, was written by Aja and his HIGH TENSION partner Gregory Levasseur and is produced by original HILLS director Wes Craven and producer Peter Locke, along with Marianne Maddalena. The shoot will take place in Morocco (!) beginning this month.
