With reboots of both The Twilight Zone and Candyman already under his belt, Collider reports that Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us) will be producing a feature film remake of 1991 horror film The People Under The Stairs for Universal Pictures.
However, Jordan Peele is only expected to produce with Win Rosenfled.
Peele will produce the remake alongside Win Rosenfeld via their Monkeypaw Productions banner, and though Peele is not expected to direct the film himself, it remains unclear whether he and/or Rosenfeld will have a hand in writing the script, as they did in co-writing Candyman alongside director Nia DaCosta.
The original was directed by horror legend Wes Craven, who created Nightmare On Elm Street and Scream franchises.
THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS – When young Fool (Brandon Adams) breaks into the home of his family’s greedy and uncaring landlords, he discovers a disturbing scenario where incestuous adult siblings have mutilated a number of boys and kept them imprisoned under stairs in their large, creepy house. As Fool attempts to flee before the psychopaths can catch him, he meets their daughter, Alice (A.J. Langer), who has been spared any extreme discipline by her deranged parents. Can Fool and Alice escape before it’s too late?
