A Remake of David Cronenberg's Shivers Begins Shooting February 2014

Producers Jeff Sackman and Michael Baker today announced that they will remake the horror classic Shivers, David Cronenberg's first feature film. That film, highlighted with a special screening at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, broke ground with its boundary-pushing sexuality and violence in its original release, nearly 40 years ago.

Shivers will be directed by award-winning Danish filmmaker Rie Rasmussen from a screenplay written by Ian Driscoll. Sackman and Baker will produce through their respective companies, Tajj Media and Bunk 11 Pictures. Working with them as executive producer is the film's original executive producer, Andr&#233 Link. Shivers will begin shooting in February 2014, with casting currently underway.

In Shivers, a genetically-engineered strain of parasites that turn people into violent, compulsive sex-addicts is released into a self-contained luxury apartment complex. The resident doctor attempts to find a cure before the infected, nymphomaniac inhabitants spread their legs - and the parasites.
