A remake of the horror film Wrong Turn is currently under development. Constantin Film is heading the project, and Wrong Turn franchise creator Alan McElroy is back to write the script. The movie will be directed by Mike P. Nelson, who was the director of the sci-fi thriller The Domestics.
The history of Wrong Turn goes back to 2003 when the original movie was made. Hungry cannibal families on the hunt in the woods of West Virginia created the terror in the original film and the five franchise films that followed. The last movie in the franchise, Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort, was made in 2014. One constant presence throughout the Wrong Turn movie series has been a cannibal called Three Finger (Julian Richings).
Some details about the plot of the remake have been released. According to Deadline, the remake is supposed to be “a timely and topical meditation on society and its issues.” It features a group of friends on a cross-country hiking expedition that puts them “in the land of an inclusive society, where they soon discover they are under a different rule of law, and may not be the victims they thought they were.” We’ll have to wait and see how the cannibals fit into this new storyline and whether or not Three Finger will return as well.
