While I’m not the biggest fan of remakes, I don’t mind the idea of a “retelling” of an old, well-known story. Such is the case with The Awakened, the new “retelling” of the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde tale.
Not much is known about this forthcoming flick, except that it’s supposed to start filming September 7, in The Hamptons, and that Edward Furlong and Christian Slater (rumored) have been cast. Fuck yes! Among the others set to star are Steven Bauer (Scarface), John Savage (The Orphan Killer), Julianne Michelle, and Bryan Dechart. It’s being directed by big-screen new-comer Arno Malarone.
All IMDB has to say about it is this:
“A modern day Jekyll and Hyde who knows no bounds.”
Stay Scared, kids.
