Michael Biehn to star in English-language redo

Blanc Biehn Prods. has come onboard to produce an English-language remake of Patricio Valladares’ “En las afueras de la ciudad” (“Hidden in the Woods”).

Michael Biehn will star.

The original horror pic, which will premiere Aug. 6 at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, tells the story of two sisters in Chile who have been raised in isolation by their drug-dealing father.

The remake will be a joint production for Valladares Films, with Valladares and Evelyn Belmar producing, and Blanc Biehn Prods., with Jennifer Blanc Biehn and Michael Biehn producing. Valladares will direct, with production set to begin at the end of this year on location in Chile.

Biehn’s grindhouse thriller “The Victim,” which he wrote, directed and starred in, screened July 23 at Fantasia Fest and is set to open in New York on Aug. 24 with Anchor Bay distribbing. “The Victim” is a Crimson Films Release in association with Pegasus Prods. and PMK.

Blanc Biehn recently wrapped production on “Treachery.”
