Lionsgate has acquired the remake rights to the Russian horror movie The Bride. The studio landed the rights thanks to its alliance with Globalgate Entertainment. Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes, known for writing The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, will produce the remake alongside Vlad Severtsev, producer of the original movie.

The Bride, aka Nevesta was written and directed by Svyatoslav Podgayevsky (Queen of Spades: The Dark Rite), and follows a young woman named Nastya, who is in the process of planning her wedding to her fiance Ivan at his creepy and isolated family home. As strange events occur and escalate, she begins to realize that she may be the target of a restless spirit who seeks to use her as a part of a macabre ritual to return to life. The film starred Victoria Agalakova, Vyacheslav Chepruchenko, and Aleksandra Rebenok.

You can check out the trailer for the original Russian-version of The Bride (Nevesta) below:

The core concept of The Bride is probably what has spearheaded this American remake. Released in Russia in January of 2017, the film received generally lukewarm reviews but a solid audience turnout, it grossed $3.1 million before subsequently being released in several other territories. An American remake could actually make a stronger movie based solely on the film’s strong proof of concept.

There is no word yet on when Lionsgate’s remake of The Bride will hit theaters but look for it to possibly land sometime before 2019.
