Female Cast Grows for Mother’s Day Remake


Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine 3D), Briana Evigan and Alexa Vega will join Deborah Ann Woll in Darren Lynn Bousman’s remake of Mother’s Day. The director announced via Twitter this evening that Shawn Ashmore has also been cast. King, he says, will play “Beth.”

This is Bousman’s second collaboration with Vega after she starred in his horror rock musical Repo! The Genetic Opera. Evigan, who will be seen next month in Sorority Row, starred in Bousman’s “Fear Itself” episode “New Year’s Day.”

Mother’s Day, a remake of the ’80s Troma production, concerns a villainous family return to the house where they grew up and terrorize the new owners and their guests.
