Jordan Peele is working on a remake of ‘The People Under The Stairs’

Words: Dylan Murphy

The horror satire film from the nineties is getting a fresh reworking.

Director of Get Out and US Jordan Peele will produce a remake of Wes Craven’s 1991 horror The People Under the Stairs.

According to Collider, Peele will produce the new version of the horror film through his company Monkeypaw Productions. (The company behind The Black KKKlansman, US and Get Out)

The original 1991 horror satire saw two robbers and a young boy break into a house to steal a coin collection. They later are left fighting for survival after discovering the truth behind the couple that own the home.

Before he died in 2015, Craven was rumoured to be working on a TV series of the film, but it never materialised.

There has been no official release date for the reboot, but yesterday (November 1) was the 29th anniversary of its release. That leaves the potential for a 30th-anniversary release in 2021.
