DMX is to rejoin producer of his recent movie ‘EXIT WOUNDS’, JOEL SILVER, for a remake of the 1931 thriller ‘M’.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the as-yet-untitled project is due to start filming in the autumn. It will be the third time the rap star has worked with Silver, the first being ‘Romeo Must Die’.

The original film was set in Berlin and starred Peter Lorre as a child killer who terrorises the city. Despite exhaustive investigations, the police are eluded and the criminal underworld decide to join in to help catch the murderer.

DMX has signed a multi-film contract with Warner Brothers films.
