- Daniel Stamm had this to say about what fans can expect from the remake: "Martyrs is very nihilistic. The American approach [that I'm looking at] would go through all that darkness but then give a glimmer of hope. You don't have to shoot yourself when it's over."
- Director Daniel Stamm also helmed The Last Exorcism.
- Producer Wyck Godfrey has been quoted saying the following towards the story of the original.. "the core elements of it are fascinating. I love the cult and what it's about, and I'm also obsessed with the nature of childhood friends -- growing up when one doesn't believe the other one and the corruption between that. I'm excited."
- Producer Wyck Godfrey (Twilight films) has expressed interest in having Twilight star Kristen Stewart as one of the lead females.
- Despite being quoted as "not remake-able in its form for an American audience" this project is still being developed for an American audience, with an intended American cast.
- Scripted by Mark L. Smith (Vacancy, Vacancy 2: The First Cut, The Hole).
- The obvious remake of Pascal Laugier's 2008 French film with the same name.
