Franck Khalfoun Remaking Maniac

One of the 80tees most violent movies is getting a remake. I was hoping the idea got swept away and never to be heard of again. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, as the remake appears to be in full swing.

According to the guys over at Bloody-Disgusting, they have exclusively learned that Franck Khalfoun will be directing the remake of Maniac from a script penned by Alexandre Aja and Grégory Levasseur.

There is no news on a start date or any cast attached, but I have a feeling this will begin very soon. For those unfamiliar with, William Lustig’s Maniac, check out the synopsis and original trailer below.


“A schizoid serial killer randomly stalks and kills various young women in New York, which he sees as revenge for the mistreatment he got while being raised by his own abusive mother.”
