THE EYES HAVE IT FOR REMAKE OF WES CRAVEN CLASSIC HORROR
"The Hills Have Eyes," a remake of the 1977 Wes Craven horror cult classic that Alexandre Aja is directing, has landed at the Fox Searchlight studio.
The Fox specialty division beat out several suitors for the project, which was in turnaround from Dimension Films. Craven, who directed and wrote the original, is producing.

"Eyes" tells the tale of a vacationing family that takes a wrong turn, accidentally going through an air-testing range. When they get stranded in the desert, they become the targets of a cannibalistic, feral group of humans.

The original movie was part of the 1970s wave of cutting-edge chillers and helped establish Craven's reputation as a horrormeister.

Aja, who directed and co-wrote the French horror film "Haute Tension" (High Tension), also will write the remake with his "Tension" co-writer Gregory Levasseur.

"Not only that, but the eyes have glasses and the... okay this wordplay makes me wanna SCREAM! D'oh!"
