Last House Remake Gets Its Stars

Today, Variety is reporting that the remake of Wes Craven’s Last House on the Left will star Tony Goldwyn and Monica Potter. The film, which begins filming this month in South Africa, will be directed by Dennis Iliadis. Don’t expect too many new surprises in the update: It’s still “about escaped convicts who take two teenage girls hostage and then take
refuge in one of the girl’s home after leaving her for dead.”

Goldwyn hasn’t done much horror, but he has had a thriving career that began with a fright, in Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI . Potter hasn’t done many scary movies either. But she did star in the original Saw. The upshot? Last House probably shouldn’t be remade, but perhaps Iliadis, who hasn’t done much except for a pseudo porn flick called Hardcore, may be inspired by Craven’s original and rise to the occasion. Let’s hope so.
