Three Hammer Favorites Being 'Reimagined'

Three Hammer Favorites Being 'Reimagined'It's great to live in a time when Hammer Films is up and running and doing its thing by scaring the hell out of us. With three films on the way, The Resident starring Hilary Swank, a remake of The Woman in Black, and of course Let Me In, which will be arriving in theaters this October, things have never been busier; but they're not stopping there!

Our bros at Bloody Disgusting recently caught up with Hammer CEO Simon Oakes, who dropped the news that new versions of Captain Kronos, Quatermass, and Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde are also on the way!

Click on the above link for a really in-depth interview in which Oakes discusses the differences between remakes and reimaginings, as well as what newer versions of said films would look and feel like today.

Look for more on all of Hammer's projects soon, and in the meantime visit Hammer Films Online.

Leave it alone. You can't improve on perfection. And do you mean "Captain Kronos?" "Kronos" is a killer robot film.

You're right -- of course it's Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter SUPREME! Maybe he can take out some of those sparkly guys.

What a friggen weird film Captain Kronos is. I love it though. I can't help but think a remake will mainstream it, romantize it, which would be a shame. It's charm comes from it's oddness.
