Here is the latest on the remake of Children of the Corn:

SCI FI Channel has cast its upcoming Children of the Corn remake, with David Anders, Kandyse McClure, Preston Bailey and Daniel Newman coming aboard the two-hour TV movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie, based on the Stephen King novel, features Anders (NBC's Heroes) and McClure (Battlestar Galactica) as Burt and Vicky, a couple with marital problems whose attempt at a second-honeymoon driving trip ends up taking them into a seemingly deserted rural community that conceals a grim secret among its rows of tall corn.

Bailey plays boy preacher Isaac, while Newman plays his rebellious right-hand man, Malachai.

The movie, set to air next year, is shooting in and around Davenport, Iowa. Donald P. Borchers is directing from his own script.

The TV movie is supposed to be two hours long and here are some photos from the movie and another article about it.
