James Wan to Produce The Entity (1983) Remake

9 hours ago

You might remember The Entity from when it first haunted the big screen in 1983, telling the supposedly true life tale of Doris Bither, a woman who claimed she was sexually abused by a supernatural presence. It's now been announced that The Entity is being reimagined in a remake produced by James Wan and Roy Lee, with two notable horror movie scribes set to write the script.
