The Ring scribe hired for Children of the Corn remake
As part of a story on the future of the Weinstein Company, and Bob Weinstein’s genre division Dimension Films, Variety reports that My Bloody Valentine 3D director Patrick Lussier is in talks to write and direct the recently-announced Halloween 3D with plans to have it ready for a summer 2010 release. Dimension have also tapped Ehren Kruger (The Ring) to adapt Stephen King’s short story Children of the Corn into a new movie. The story of a boy preacher who persuades the kids of a Nebraska town to kill all the adults was previously turned into a movie in 1984, and that went on to spawn six sequels.
