It's no secret that Hollywood has fallen in love with remakes over the past few years, especially in regards to the horror flicks.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Greek director Dennis Iliadis has signed on to direct an update of Craven's seminal 1972 film, about a gang of murderous thugs who inadvertently hole up at a house owned by the parents of one of their victims.
