The 1994 adaptation of the comic book series tells the story of a murdered man who comes back to life to avenge the killing of his fiancé.

The studio is referring to the remake as a "re-invention" of the initial gothic version. The script will be re-written by musician Nick Cave, who also wrote The Proposition with Guy Pearce.

The cast has yet to be chosen, though Mark Wahlberg was considered but passed, according to The Playlist. The film is scheduled to begin production this fall.

Fresnadillo is currently completing Intruders, a horror thriller starring Clive Owen (Duplicity).

The original film's producer Edward R. Pressman will come on board to co-produce with Fresnadillo's producing partner Enrique López Lavigne of Apaches Entertainment in hopes of creating a similar impact on a contemporary audience.
