And the parade of obscure little films continues. Next up to the plate is a redux of the Roger Corman produced slice of robo-mayhem known as Chopping Mall. Read on for all of the details.
According to Variety Robert Hall’s Dry County Entertainment (Laid to Rest, Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2) is hanging out at a Chopping Mall, acquiring the remake rights to the ’80s horror title.
Hall and producing partner Kevin Bocarde will produce and write. Hall is also coming on to direct with lensing to begin in the spring.
The original Chopping Mall was produced by Roger Corman and his wife, Julie. It centered around a group of teenagers who become trapped in a shopping mall with killer robots. Bocarde said the new movie won’t be a straight remake. “It will retain the basic concept of young people trapped in a mall; however, the story will have a darker, supernatural spin,” he explained.
Hall noted that he had started in show business at Corman’s studio. “This is an exciting way to pay homage and honor Roger while also expanding the original film’s premise,” he said.
