Aja to produce, Levasseur to direct
The French helmer behind High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes and Mirrors tells us that he’s currently circling a remake of William Lustig’s brutal 1980 film Maniac!
“[It’s] something that I want to be involved with my long-time partner and co-writer, Greg [Levasseur], will direct. It might happen,” Aja says.
Aja stressed, however, the papers were not signed and no deal has been finalized, but it is a project he’s looking at. So, right now the project is a “maybe” for him.
Original Maniac director William Lustig has hinted, in the past, that a redo was in the works.
