I Walked With a Zombie
It's been over a year since last we talked about the Highland Film Group's proposed remake of the RKO classic I Walked with a Zombie, but man, how times and things concerning the project have changed.
As you may recall, RKO announced a deal with Twisted Pictures earlier last year, and as a result there has been a lot of chatter amongst the two companies about horror remakes. ComingSoon published an interview with director Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain), who will be producing I Walked with a Zombie for RKO and Twisted Pictures, about some of them.
During an interview with Shock Till You Drop the director of Race to Witch Mountain, Andy Fickman, revealed some interesting tidbits of news about Jason Goes to Hell director Adam Marcus' involvement in Twisted Pictures' upcoming remake of I Walked With a Zombie.
A new development has come to light regarding the proposed remakes of classic RKO horror pictures today, with the announcement that RKO’s new horror subsidiary Roseblood would be joining with Twisted Pictures to make the remakes a reality, according to Variety.
Wow, how touching is it that horror is what brought RKO and the Writers' Guild together for an interim agreement that will allow them to keep making movies? They were able to get together, hold hands once again if you will, all in the name of getting some horror out the door.
