PROJECT DETAILS
  • Filming is aimed to begin sometime in 2017. (5/17/16)
  • Reportedly budgeted at $5M-$10M USD.
  • At the moment it's unclear whether the producers want to completely contemporize the story or keep it a period piece, considering its real-life roots in the 17th century.
  • This is said to be a "passion project" for producer Nicolas Winding Refn, which he described as a "very visual and contemporary film" which he referred to as "fascinating in its physical and emotional violence."
  • Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, The Neon Demon) produces via his Space Rocket Nation label.
  • The original movie featured a lot of torture and violence, which reportedly stirred controversy with the UK censors. In the U.S. it played at drive-ins and grindhouses and ultimately gained cult status.
  • This is a remake of the 1968 film Witchfinder General, which was also known as The Conqueror Worm.
