In 2001 the singular ghost story of Alejandro Amenábar, The Others, was a box office and critical success, a bit like it had happened two years earlier The sixth sense. Last April it was announced that the Sentient Entertainment had bought the remake rights. Now it becomes more concrete with the entrance of Universal Pictures as a manufacturer.
The project is still in the early stages of the first meetings with the writers, so it may take a while to bring it to the screen.
For those who haven’t seen it or don’t remember it, The Others it was set in 1945 and was starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Stewart, a woman who lived in an isolated country house in the Channel Islands, with her two photosensitive children. Consequently, everything had to be dark and the house never got sunlight. At one point, due to some strange phenomena, Grace began to suspect that the house could be haunted and investigated to discover the presence of “others”. This up to a surprise ending, which we do not reveal to you in case you want to recover The Others per Halloween.
