    Before it was the most socially conscious (and healthiest) thing to do in the wake of a global pandemic, Nicole Kidman was an OG quaran-queen of the horror genre thanks to her claustrophobic 2001 thriller The Others, which EW has confirmed is getting a Hollywood remake in the near future

    Sentient Entertainment recently acquired the rights to produce its own version of the Alejandro Amenábar-directed movie, which featured Kidman as a distraught widow and mother who shuts herself inside a mansion to protect her photosensitive children from a supernatural threat.
    Deadline first reported the news Wednesday that Sentient’s Renee Tab and Christopher Tuffin — who previously worked on David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, Ryan Murphy’s Feud: Bette and Joan, and Jennifer Garner’s Peppermint — will produce the modernized remake alongside Aliwen Entertainment’s Lucas Akoskin, Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo, FilmSharks’ Guido Rud, and Miller Way’s Michael and Jeeny Miller.

    “I am honored to be able to work on my favorite horror film of all time, The Others, and to bring this reimagining to the big screen for new audiences,” Tab told the publication, which also indicated the film is currently courting A-list talent.

    “It is almost eerie and uncanny how timely the themes are today: self-isolation, paranoia and fear, and of course the intense desire to protect our children and ourselves from harm. We look forward to unraveling the layers behind lead character Grace, whose pain and demons draw viewers into a truly compassionate journey.”

    Of all dumb decisions, this one takes the cake. The Others works precisely becasue of the twist, and everyone knows the twist by now. Also, no one will fill Kidman’s shoes so that’s that.

    That Kidman didn’t win for one-two punch of Moulin Rouge/The Others that year is a crime.

    I feel like this has Keira Knightly written all over it when they start casting.
