And here we are with the second remake/reboot of the day. Just earlier we received word that the Pet Sematary remake was moving ahead and now we have word that a reboot of the cult classic Sleepaway Camp, is on the horizon.
According to Deadline, ex-Fox/New Line executive Jeff Katz has optioned the remake rights from the original movie’s trio of makers and rights holders: Writer/director-turned-lawyer Robert Hiltzik, producer Michele Tatosian, and actress Felissa Rose, who starred in the 1983 pic as Angela.
The reboot is said to follow the same mythos as the original film, but it will be set in a modern setting which echoes the psychosexual elements of the first film.
At this time they’re on the search for a writer to bring the reboot to life.
Now, I loved the original Sleepaway Camp, but I also know that many of you disliked it but with a reboot on the cards, will you guys be interested in seeing where they take it?
