Director of My Bloody Valentine Remake Chosen

It will appear now that the landmark horror classics have either been remade or are now on the plate for remake, studios are now looking around at the knock off films of that era for remake. As everyone knows, after John Carpenter's Halloween came out there was a slew of holiday themed slashers, one of which is My Bloody Valentine, which Lionsgate has scheduled for remake.

Bloody-Disgusting has learned that Patrick Lussier has been selected to helm the film, which will be penned by new writer Zane Smith. Lussier has previously helmed White Noise 2: The Light, Dracula 2000, Dracula II: Accession, and Dracula III: Legacy. I have yet to see the original, so I really have no preconceived notions about what it should be. What I do know of the original is that about ten minutes of the film were cut out due to violence, however Paramount has yet to release an uncut version of the film.  However, I can bet that the remake will probably be rated PG13.

The plot for the remake is this: "Ten years ago the sleepy town of Harmony, Montana was the site of a series of grisly murders on Valentine's Night. Now it seems the killer is back...or is he?" The remake of My Bloody Valentine is due to start filming late March/early April in Pittsburgh, PA.
