It is hard to believe that the original Norwegian slasher film, Roar Uthaug’s Cold Prey (aka Fritt Vilt), was released over a decade ago. There was a sequel in 2008 and a prequel in 2010, the latter of which has never was released in the U.S.
WWE Studios has announced that they have acquired the remake rights to Cold Prey, and they have also acquired an option to purchase a screenplay currently being penned by Casey La Scala (The Remaining). The film, being described as The Grey meets The Revenant, will center on a strong female character who reaches the limits of physical and mental endurance.
Michael Luisi, WWE Studios President, will oversee for WWE and will produce along with La Scala. Marius Haugan will executive produce.
