Adam Marcus to Remake I Walked With a Zombie
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.
Marcus will be at the directorial helm for this redux of the 1943 classic, which told the story of a young Canadian nurse (Betsy Connell) who comes to the West Indies to care for Jessica, the wife of a plantation manager (Paul Holland). Jessica seems to be suffering from a kind of mental paralysis as a result of fever. When she falls in love with Paul, Betsy determines to cure Jessica even if she needs to use a voodoo ceremony to give Paul what she thinks he wants.
"We're just getting ready to start going out for casting on that, and we'll film that in New Orleans in the spring," Finkman told Shock, so I'm guessing more news will be hitting the fast track soon!
Interestingly, Marcus has only had two directorial gigs since The Final Friday, a 1999 movie called Let it Snow and a flick that hit last year called Conspiracy. What's the guy been up to, one has to wonder?
