Former Euphoria actor Barbie Ferreira parted ways with the HBO franchise after two seasons, but she is gearing up for her next big role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ferreira will star in Faces of Death, a remake of the 1978 horror movie of the same name, alongside Stranger Things standout Dacre Montgomery.

Director Daniel Goldhaber and writer Isa Mazzei, the team behind Netflix’s Cam, will lead the upcoming remake. The film was so controversial that it was banned in over four dozen countries and spawned a series of sequels over the course of twenty-one years. New details continue to emerge about the upcoming remake, so read ahead for everything we know about Faces of Death.

What is Faces of Death about?

Faces of Death followed a pathologist’s journey to explore gruesome ways to die through footage captured from around the world. Most of the death scenes were staged, but the premise of the film drew outrage. Released in 1978, Faces of Death became heralded as a cult classic in the 1980s once VHS tapes were released.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the remake will follow a “female moderator of a YouTube-like website whose job is to weed out offensive and violent content and who herself is recovering from a serious trauma, who stumbles across a group that is re-creating the murders from the original film. But in the story primed for the digital age of online misinformation, the question is: Are the murders real or fake?”

What has the cast and crew said about Faces of Death?

“Faces of Death was one of the first viral video tapes, and we are so lucky to be able to use it as a jumping-off point for this exploration of cycles of violence and the way they perpetuate themselves online,” said Mazzei and Goldhaber in a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.
