It's been over a year since last we talked about the Highland Film Group's proposed remake of the RKO classic I Walked with a Zombie, but man, how times and things concerning the project have changed.
Not satisfied with the hefty slate of films announced back in February of 2008, RKO Pictures has set its sights on the rights to a new Hitchcockian thriller!
As you may recall, RKO announced a deal with Twisted Pictures earlier last year, and as a result there has been a lot of chatter amongst the two companies about horror remakes. ComingSoon published an interview with director Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain), who will be producing I Walked with a Zombie for RKO and Twisted Pictures, about some of them.
A new development has come to light regarding the proposed remakes of classic RKO horror pictures today, with the announcement that RKO’s new horror subsidiary Roseblood would be joining with Twisted Pictures to make the remakes a reality, according to Variety.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really looking forward to Patrick Lussier’s remake of My Bloody Valentine, and not just because it’s going to be in 3D. No, the more I read about the more it sounds like it’s going to be a damn solid horror film.
Wow, how touching is it that horror is what brought RKO and the Writers' Guild together for an interim agreement that will allow them to keep making movies? They were able to get together, hold hands once again if you will, all in the name of getting some horror out the door.
