Strike Entertainment is in the process of remaking John Carpenter's 1988 movie They Live. The original film starred professional wrestler Roddy "Rowdy" Piper as a loner who stumbled across a secret underground movement that fought aliens who were exploiting the planet for their own financial gain. When the hero put on a pair of specially treated sunglasses he could see through the illusions broadcast by the exploitative extraterrestrials which subliminally controlled people to see what they wanted us to see. Carpenter's film has retained cult status for its social commentary about the wide gulf between the rich and poor and capitalism run amok.

Strike is in talks with Les Mougins to acquire the film rights and make the remake which would be released through Universal Pictures. Strike's Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will serve as the remake's producers while Shep Gordon and John Carpenter will receive executive producer credit.
