“I was so proud to see it come back to the screen,” Villeneuk told The Hollywood Reporter in an exclusive interview for the film’s upcoming Halloween installment.
“I was thrilled, and I was so glad I could do it.”
The new version, which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Tom Hardy, stars Oscar winner John Goodman as John, a father of four who is working on his own career in Hollywood and in a new TV show with the show’s creator, David Fincher.
“He’s an honest, humble guy,” Villenueve said.
“He’s very smart and smartly funny and very well-spoken.
He’s very talented and he has a gift for directing.”
The film is set for release in the fall.
“There’s a little bit of something there that’s new,” Villaneu said of the new version of the film.
“It’s not exactly the same, but it’s a whole different approach.”
The first “The Eight” was released in the summer of 2014, and the film earned $3.2 million at the box office.
The new version is set up to be released on October 21, 2019.
