Casting Ensues on Prom Night ReduxGoon
Today Sony Screen Gems have announced some of the cast that will be in the new Prom Night remake that we have been hearing about for years. It sounds as though they are finally giving the film its final push to production now. The cast will include Brittany Snow, Johnathon Schaech, Brianne Davis, Jana Kramer, Hugh Scott and Kelly Blatz.
The film is going to be directed by Nelson McCormick who has done alot of work but none of it on a genre film or in a theater. But I would rather have McCormick on board rather than some music video director. Now the script question is something I have yet to figure out.
Apparently a couple years ago Stephen Susco wrote a script for the Prom Night Remake. After that Ernesto M Foronda tried his hand at reworking the script. Then again J.S. Cardone wrote a script. Now even though it looks like they are headlining Susco script he has went on the record saying his involvement ended in 2004 and has since read Cardones script. After reading it said "I did recently read Cardone's greenlit script -- and I can report that not a single word, character, story idea, plot point or line of dialogue from my original PROM NIGHT script has been retained in the version about to be shot."
So who's script is going to be used? Who knows. But if your into classic horror films being remade you can check out Prom Night which now has a schedueled release date of February 1st, 2008.
