Talk about timing! With Mother’s Day just a few days away the news has come out tonight that the remake is officially a go! Even better — the folks behind it? Read on and see for yourself!
Variety broke the story minutes ago that Twisted Pictures’ Mark Burg, Oren Koules and Carl Mazzocone — the producers behind the Saw franchise — are bringing Troma Films’ 1980 cult horror pic Mother’s Day back to the bigscreen with director Darren Lynn Bousman at the helm.
The remake penned by Scott Milam will center upon “a family of villains, led by a sadistic mother, who return to their former home and terrorize the new owners and their guests.”
Of course as soon as we heard we contacted Bousman directly and he had this to say …
“Never in a million years did I ever think I would do a remake” Darren tells us. “I was wrong … The second I put down this script – I knew I HAD to make this movie! It’s fucking insane!”
Knowing Darren and his lovable depravity this bodes very well!
The filmmakers are pushing for a summer start date to put them on track for a Mother’s Day weekend 2010 theatrical release! Hell … fucking … yes!
