Filming has begun in Sofia, Bulgaria, on the remake of Larry Cohen's 1974 horror classic It's Alive.

Robert A Katz and Avi Lerner are producing with Moshe Diamant serving as executive producer. Mark Damon's Foresight Unlimited is handling international sales.

Josef Rusnak is directing Bijou Phillips, James Murray and Raphael Coleman in the tale of a monstrous baby that kills when it becomes scared, which unfortunately for the victims in he film is a frequent occurrence. Owen Teale, Ty Glasser and Skye Bennett round out the key cast.

'Some character elements and situations have been updated to reflect certain changes in society, but the script still preys on the genre's ability to explode the foundation of today's bourgeoisie,' Rusnak said.
