While overseeing the final days of principal photography on Friday the 13th, Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller provided an update on another remake, Rosemary's Baby, which we exclusively broke the news about in March (details).
"If we don't do Rosemary's Baby someone else is," says Fuller. "They're not going to pass on that. Being horror fans like we are, we want to take the opportunity to take shot at it rather than read about someone else doing it. All the shit we get for doing these things, it really just comes from being huge fans and wanting to take a shot."
Currently, there are two are three screenwriters contending for the job. Fuller explains they are currently hearing a number of divergent takes on story. "You would say Rosemary's Baby supernatural story, so one of our takes is supernatural, the other is not supernatural. It takes that story and roots it in reality and that's going to be a decision that we're going to have to make soon as we wrap [Friday the 13th] and we go back to LA, and start sitting down with Paramount as to what kind of story do they want us to tell for them and what's the smartest way to tell that story."
The original Rosemary's Baby, directed by Roman Polanski, starred Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes. It was based on a novel by Ira Levin.
