Hollywood studios are competing for the rights to Park Chan-Wook’s “Thirst” — and it hasn’t even premiered at Cannes yet.
True vampires are hot, and Park is among the hottest filmmakers in Korea with his great films, Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr, Vengeance, and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance already in the remake pipeline. Park’s involvement in the reamkes is minimal to non-existent. He told Variety, “I want them to treat my films as if they were books and I was an 18th century writer who has long been dead.”
Twisted Pictures, the motherf… I mean, people behind the Saw series are set to remake Lloyd Kaufman’s Mother’s Day. As much a sequel as a remake the new picture finds Mom and her sons returning to their old home to torture and degrade a new generation.
Wow. We’re remaking Troma Pictures.
MTV has posted the first footage from the reamake of the Crazies. Dig it below.

Bloody Disgusting reports a conversation with Chris Fisher where he talks about his Eyes of Laura Mars remake project.
Evidently the producers want a re-scripting based on the original movie while Fisher would prefer to use John Carpenter’s original script. We’ll have to see where this goes. If a new director is brought in it’s probably a bad sign.
SCIFIWire has a cool interview with the writer/director behind the Night of the Demons remake, Adam Gierasch. It seems that he was a little worried about doing a remake; he says, “[I was worried] that people were going to hate me. I do look at the Internet message boards, and they do hurt my feelings, and I know in a lot of ways it’s a lose-lose situation. But if I could put f–king punk rock, demon buttf–king and have the ultimate Halloween party movie, then I would be happy, and I did that. So I just tried to please myself more than please others.”
The original Night of the Demons wasn’t that great so if he’s turning out a decent movie I’m down with it.
Plus he had me at “demon buttf–king.”
