Oldboy producer Roy Lee and Prometheus writer Jon Spaihts are teaming up with Lionsgate to remake the 1997 Canadian cult film, Cube. Oh, and this time it’s called Cubed.

EW has confirmed the Hollywood Reporter‘s story that newcomer Saman Kesh, director of the sci-fi action short film Controller, is attached to helm a script penned by British TV writer Philip Gawthorne. The original film, directed by Vincenzo Natali (Splice), revolved around the journey of seven strangers trapped inside a giant cube-like puzzle/prison. The film didn’t even crack $1 million at the U.S. box office, but it won enough of a cult following to warrant a sequel (Cube 2: Hypercube) and a prequel (Cube Zero). Cubed is described as a reimagining of the original premise, with a greater emphasis on the story’s survival-thriller aspects and artificial-intelligence.
