Yet another Children of the Corn?Posted: September 8, 2009, 13:38:08
Ehren Kruger has been hired to pen a new adaptation of Stephen King’s Children of the Corn tale, which has already inspired the 1984 New World release, several Dimension-issued sequels and a redux that hits the Syfy channel and DVD this fall.
“We felt the New World film was a missed opportunity,” Dimension topper Bob Weinstein tells Variety. “If you read the short story, it’s got such a strong feeling to it and there’s this religious overtone to it as well. Ehren wants to hit it hard. It’s popular in Hollywood to say you’re re-envisioning a project, but a lot of the time they’re just carbon copying the original. We are bringing something new to the story.”
