Craven's Last House on the Left gains writer/director

WesCraven.jpgThe remake of Wes Craven's The Last House on the Left seems to be going ahead well as we hear that a Writer and Director have been signed up.

Currently finalising a deal are Dennis Iliadis to direct and Adam Alleca to write the remake of Wes Craven's classic The Last House on the Left, his first film back fro 1972.

Apparently the remake is going to go for reality and focus on the same story of killers who seek refuge in a house which just happens to be the house of the parents of one of their victims. Iliadis was chosen for his hit on reality, particularly from his film Hardcore, according to Variety.

Craven's reasons for all these remakes? Why not is the answer. Apparently he had more creative control over these films and so he can. Seems an honest answer, although I guess cash has something to do with it.

Actually I might be looking forward to this one more than his other remakes as this really does have a strong identity to it, and it could be done really well. Has anyone seen Hardcore (the Iliadis film!) and can comment on it to give us an idea how this might turn out?
