Dropped by the house of Jigsaw
An update of Kevin Connor’s 1980 Motel Hell, in which Rory Calhoun is seen capturing folks then turning them into treats, is back at MGM. Earlier this year, the redo rights landed in the hands of Twisted Pictures (responsible for Saw and its sequels).
“We were going to do it and we couldn’t come up with a script we liked,” Twisted Pictures’ Mark Burg told me at the Scream 2008 awards ceremony in Hollywood. “I’m not going to make a movie just to make a movie. We had a couple of drafts and none of them are good enough – so why do it?”
Since then, rumblings have placed Automaton Transfusion director Steven Miller at the helm of Hell.
