    Default Apparently there's yet another Children of the Corn remake coming?

    Didn't find a thread or any mention, so this is news to me:



    https://variety.com/2020/film/asia/c...us-1234631393/
    Kurt Wimmer’s reimagining of “Children of the Corn” has completed its coronavirus-defying shoot in Australia. The filmmakers employed stringent health and safety protocols, and multiple insurance policies.

    The producers revealed the previously undisclosed cast of young actors, with Elena Kampouris (“Before I Fall”) and Kate Moyer (“When Hope Calls”) starring. They are accompanied by Australian talent Callan Mulvey (“Avengers: Endgame”) and Bruce Spence (“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”).

    “You can theorize all you like about safety protocols, but until you get on set, you don’t really know. But I can now tell you it is impossible to keep a camera crew 1.5 meters apart,” producer Lucas Foster (“Ford v Ferrari”) told Variety.

    Principal photography began in New South Wales in early March, when the COVID-19 outbreak forced the majority of productions around the world to shut down.

    “We ended up taking hundreds of measures. We did not trust the whole. Instead, we broke down every scene separately. Night. Day. Crowds. Interiors. And so on, assessing different levels of risk,” Foster said.

    The production leaned heavily on safety manager Jon Heaney. A stunt coordinator with credits on “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” he also has experience in the construction and mining industries. It also worked closely with the Screen NSW and SafeWork NSW agencies.

    Australia has now drawn up standard protocols for film and TV productions, and has eased its lockdown and internal travel restrictions as the rates of infection have eased. But much of the industry currently remains grounded because insurance companies are unwilling to issue cover that includes compensation for COVID-19 infection.

    “Corn” bought its insurance cover early. “We had the insurance in place before we hit the ground, and I made sure to have paid the premiums before I left the U.S.,” Foster said. “I treated the film like an indie movie, one with no margin of error and lots of insurance.” Foster says he took out three policies: for travel, production and the kind of specifics that can occur on a horror action movie.

    “We did not use a completion bond. If we had, we would probably have been considered unfilmable and got shut down,” Foster said.

    Foster says the new film has “almost nothing to do with” the 1984 movie, directed by Fritz Kiersch, and based on the same Stephen King short story. “We went back to the story and free-associated from there,” he said.

    The film describes the events leading up to, and including, the massacre of the adults of a small town in Nebraska by their children, after the adults’ irresponsibility ruins the crop and the children’s future.

    Along with Foster, production credits go to Doug Barry (“FML”) and John Baldecchi (“Happy Death Day”). Wimmer, Mathieu Bonzon, Donald P. Borchers, Pascal Borno, John Fragomeni, Brian LaRoda, Keri Nakamoto, Andre Gaines and Sean Harner are executive producing. Foster, Bonzon, Harner and Pam Collis produced on the ground in Australia.

    The film has received major production investment from the Made in NSW fund at Screen NSW. It is expected to be completed by the end of the year. International sales are handled by Timeless Films’ Ralph Kamp and CAA.

    Casting involved large numbers of socially distanced auditions – many using self-tapes – under the supervision of John McAlary.

    Kampouris next stars opposite Josh Duhamel and Leslie Bibb in the upcoming Netflix series “Jupiter’s Legacy,” for executive producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura; and will appear in “Shoplifters of the World” with Joe Manganiello.

    Moyer is best known for her role as Heather Hobbie in Hulu’s “Holly Hobbie,” and for her part in the Season 3 finale of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

    Didn’t King rebuy the rights?

    Yes, but I also remember reading back in 2018 when it was announced that he was going to get his rights back to several of his stories, that he could only get the american rights back. So, if true, this could mean that the new movie will be released everywhere EXCEPT the USA. Hence why it's being shot in Australia?

    Oh good, we really needed a 74th version of this movie...
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I just don't understand what makes filmmakers so excited to adapt this story time and time again.
    A NEW GAME BEGINS

    And the movie is currently premiering in 2 theaters of Sarasota (to take the piss out of King living there?)

    The synopsis + posters : https://filmsociety.org/movies/movie.cfm?filID=2227
    The cinemas : CMX Cinebistro & Burns Out

    Otherwise it seems that the movie will be released in 2021. At some point

    Have to admit that I always enjoy the premise of the city slickers squaring off with the local hillbillies. Those movies now have to have that mandatory scene where the city slickers hold their phones in the air and try to get a signal - but fail! The horror.

    Is It the remake of 1984 movie or the remake of the 2008 one? :-)

    Or maybe is the sequel number 10...

    Have any of them been any good? I'll take a good movie, if one is in the offing, but that's the big if.
    God bless Holly Johnson and Andrea Dick.

    America has produced nothing so well as it has produced horses both adjacent and resistant to water.
