Universal is planning a remake on Nicole Kidman’s ghost story movie The Others. While I think this is one of Nicole’s best films a lot of people I’ve talked to seem to dislike it greatly. However, I don’t mind a remake because the story itself The Turning of The Screw has been told multiple times including The Innocents, and more recent affair including The Turning and now in the hot Netflix show The Haunting of Bly Manor.
While most of the adaptations of The Turning of The Screw have been hit or miss in recent memory and also the history of film adaptations. The story now is as hot as ever with two adaptations in as many years. So it makes sense for Universal to remake one their properties while fans are eager for more fakes on the classic story.
The original 2001 film was a major success at the box office grossing more than $200 million at the time, now with inflation that may be close to almost half a billion now. I’m not exactly sure… Don’t quote me on that. What are your thoughts on The Others getting remade? The Others is currently streaming on HBO Max if you wanted to revisit it or check it out for the first time.
