Honoring the original, changing it up a bit
While that’s all I’m sure you’d like to hear about the redo, there’s more.
Director Federico Alvarez confirmed the Campbell cameo and discussed more about his vision for the film which is presently being re-written by Diablo Cody. “We are going to change the characters and some story details, while keeping the basic outline of friends who are beleaguered by demons in a cabin alone,” he said, adding, “We’re going to honor the original film along with the existing fans and hope to bring in a new audience as well.”
