This is a remake or retelling of the same movie?


It's telling the same story as the film Alive (starring Ethan Hawke from 1993) is telling, but based on an entirely different book. Alive was based on the 1974 novel "Alive: The Story of the Andes Survivors" by Piers Paul Read whereas Society of Snow is based on a Spanish book that translates to "Society of the Snow" by Pablo Vierci (which I have not read). J.A. Bayona, who is directing Society of Snow (he did The Orphanage, The Impossible, A Monster Calls, and the second Jurassic World movie - all good to great movies except for garbage Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and he apparently did over 100 hours of interviews with the living survivors and loved the book, etc. 


It's a crazy story, should be good. The 1993 film still holds up pretty well (just realized 2023 makes it the film's 30th anniversary).
