Artisan Looks for a SCANNERS Remake
Artisan has committed to remaking 1981’s sci fi thriller, SCANNERS. Rights holders Pierre David and Rene Malo, as well as Clark Peterson will produce.
The film will closely follow the original, which followed a scientist that tries to infiltrate the Scanners, a group of people with telepathic abilities who are trying to take over the world. The famous sequence in the film was the last shot with an exploding head. “We were approached by Artisan just as we were about to hire a showrunner to do a TV series based on ‘Scanners,”‘ said David. “But they persuaded us the film could reach new audiences unfamiliar with the original.”
