According to Bloody Disgusting, a Paramount Players is developing a remake of the classic horror ‘Pumpkinhead: The Devil’s Revenge‘.
The site claims that the script is already finished and filming should start soon.
Remember that the Paramount Players is behind several recent projects of the genre, such as the reboot of ‘Paranormal activity‘ and the pre-sequences of ‘The Clock‘ e ‘Damn cemetery‘.
Previously, the producer Peter Block had already revealed that the remake was in development.
“We have great news that I can’t share yet, but we will probably be able to share it very soon. ‘Pumpkinhead’ is a movie I love. The first movie is amazing and I think there’s more we can do with that idea.”
It completes, “If there’s one thing I hate about remakes and reboots, it’s the fact that there’s no reason for them to exist, but I believe the ‘Pumpkinhead’ mythology is so rich that there are many ways to update the plot – put less focus on the plot. creature from the beginning and more in the construction of the suspense.”
The original franchise, starring Lance Henriksen, generated four films – all the sequels were released straight to video after the commercial failure of the first feature.
