Movie director Joko Anwar has announced his next project of rebooting a classic masterpiece from golden era of classy Indonesian horror film 'Pengabdi Setan' (Satan's Slave). Joko ensures that his film would not only present terror, but also the uniqueness between characters.

"We build an interesting characterization, instead of only selling eeriness. We try to scare and hopefully it would be scary. Then audiences will pay attention to the characters," revealed Joko when interviewed in Cikini, Central Jakarta last Friday.


So excited to shoot this!

Joko is also responsible for the screenplay of the movie originally made in 1980 by Sisworo Gautama Putra.

"It's been residing for 10 years on my head. When it was finally approved, I immediatelly pour what's on my mind. But, I wasn't alone when writing the script, I'm too scared," he joked.

The director through his instagram account has also announced the casts, including Tara Basro, Bront Palarae, Dimas Aditya, and Asmara Abigail.
