Michael Mann's Classic The Keep Is Getting A Remake From Horror Legend Greg Nicotero
Michael Mann’s 1983 adaptation of F. Paul Wilson’s novel of the same name, “The Keep,” is getting a remake by horror legend Greg Nicotero, according to Wilson. The author revealed on Twitter: “2 days ago, after a year and a half of lawyering between the ‘purchaser’ and my side at ICM, I signed an option/purchase agreement with Greg Nicotero for the remake of The Keep.”
Unfortunately, no information about the project has been revealed yet, but Wilson seems confident in Nicotero’s abilities, saying, “Greg is a longtime fan of the book and he’s got the chops to do a worthy adaptation.” The original novel follows a group of Nazis hunting an invisible and deadly enemy that leaves mutilated corpses behind to terrify its future victims.
Mann’s version of the story is a visually impressive, utterly bizarre movie featuring a younger Ian McKellen and Scott Glenn. Paramount heavily edited and cut half of the director’s movie, leading to a film that doesn’t quite come together. Although the full version of the 1983 movie will most likely never be seen, Nicotero may yet do the film justice when the remake is finally released.
