Sorority Row Remake Lands Director & Cast

ON

Writer talks PG-13/R battle

Principal photography is slated to begin October 6th in Pittsburgh on Sorority Row, the remake of Mark Rosman’s 1983 The House on Sorority Row.

Summit Entertainment has tapped Stewart Hendler to direct. Briana Evigan (Step Up 2: The Streets, Fear Itself) and Rumer Willis (The House Bunny) will star.

Hendler helmed Whisper, the evil tyke flick starring Lost‘s Josh Holloway in 2006 (released direct-to-DVD in 2007). The new Sorority Row is written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger.

Stolberg writes, via his blog, that Prom Night‘s success had Summit execs developing Sorority for the PG-13 crowd. Needless to say, cooler heads prevailed:

“Summit changed their minds and we are full-steam ahead on the R-rated version,” Stolberg writes. “I can’t tell you what a relief this is from a creative sense. Everything is going back in. As I’ve mentioned before, we’re not out to make torture porn and this still isn’t going to be an explicit exploitation picture – but it’s nice to be able to write a horror movie the way it should be.”
