Studiocanal is moving forward with an English-language remake of the 2006 French horror film "Ils," also known as "Them," and has hired commercials director David Alcalde to helm. It is being produced by Adrian Guerra (Buried, Red Lights).
The story revolves around Lucas and Clementine, who live peacefully in their isolated country house until one night, when a group of hooded assailants begin to terrorize them throughout the night.
Alcalde is one of the most respected commercials directors in Spain and Mexico, having created over 200 spots throughout his career. His short film "Happy Birthday to You" won Screamfest in 2006 and he was previously attached to direct a remake of the Spanish horror film "Who Can Kill a Child?"

@FilmFan - I was thinking the same thing! The real original "Them" is a classic. I used to watch it with my mom when I was a kid along with all the other great 50's and 60's b-movies. Got it on NetFlix a few months back. Surprisingly, it held up much better than I thought it would
