Hammer Films to Hold a Wake

Words cannot describe how fully elated we are that Hammer has risen from the grave -- if only for their adaptation of Susan Hill's The Woman in Black! That is far from the only thing that they have cookin' however as another project can be safely added to the pile.

Let the Right One In Remake Clarification

Well, this might end up being a bit embarrassing for Production Weekly. Last week, they reported that the US remake for Let the Right One In was getting a title overhaul and being called Let Me In and that shooting was set to start in Canada this May. I guess they may have spoken too soon.

Matt Reeves Lets the Right One In!

I was completely unaware that Tomas Alfredson's Let the Right One In (review) was even being optioned for a remake, considering it's such a new film. The vampire tale has caught the eye of Hammer Films, and a certain monster director has been tapped to helm the U.S. adaptation.

Hammer Films Begins Shooting Wake Wood
