Hammer Films to Hold a Wake

Hammer Films to Hold a WakeWords cannot describe how fully elated we are that Hammer has risen from the grave -- if only for their adaptation of Susan Hill's The Woman in Black! That is far from the only thing that they have cookin' however as another project can be safely added to the pile.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Hammer Films has picked up Wake, a spec script by Chris Borrelli, with Kasper Barfoed attached to direct. The project has franchise aspirations and has been a described as a Transporter-style story.

Interesting. Let's just hope this dude is transporting something horrific, or we won't be talking about this one around here at all. Stay tuned, we'll see what we can dig up for you!

Creepy, I like how you worked the Dracula title "Has Risen From The Grave" into the story. As someone who's been eating up Hammer films as of late, I'm interested to see The Resident, The Woman in Black and all these other films they have cooking.
