Craven's Last House on the Left remake cast
Wes Craven has a number of films being remade at the moment, not just A Nightmare on Elm Street, and none of them really hold much hope for me personally.
The Last House on the Left is an early Wes Craven film that hasn't had much press since the announcement that it was going to be remade, until the cast announcements today.
Rhys Coiro, Martha MacIsaac, Riki Lindhome and Garret Dillahunt have all been confirmed as joining the cast of the film according to Variety through Empire, and they point out that there's only one of those names that we're likely to have seen in big name films and recognise, and that's Garret Dillahunt. He starred in No Country for Old Men (Filmstalker review) and is a strong character actor.
Okay, well it hasn't changed my mind about the film as yet. Either does the news that Dennis Iliadis is the director on the remake, he previously wrote and directed a film called Hardcore, which I know nothing about.
I think there could be hope for this though, despite not really knowing anything about the director and cast, I do think that Craven's films are prime for remake at the moment and as Empire point out they are "rough round the edges" and The Hills Have Eyes (Filmstalker review) showed that they could work really well.
Has anyone seen Iliadis' Hardcore and can comment on how this might go?
