Rebecca De Mornay to Play the Mother From Hell


Rebecca De Mornay (The Hand That Rocks the Cradle) will topline the remake of cult 1980 horror film Mother’s Day. Filming starts next week in Winnipeg, says Variety.

She joins a cast that includes Jamie King, Shawn Ashmore, Briana Evigan and Deborah Ann Woll.

Darren Lynn Bousman is directing from Scott Milam’s script, which follows a family of villains, led by a sadistic mother, who return to their former home and terrorize the new owners and their guests.

The trade adds that the filmmakers are aiming for a release in April, timed to take advantage of Mother’s Day on May 9.
