HAMMER FILMS RESURRECTED
Variety reports that the frequently touted resurrection of Hammer Films is finally on the verge of happening. The famous British company, which reimagined classic horror figures in bloody color and made stars out of the likes of Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, has found new backing and is looking to launch a series of both original movies and remakes of its classic titles, along with video games, stage shows, Internet ventures, books, toys and other merchandising, as well as the establishing of a pay-TV horror channel! No specific titles have yet been announced. Look for the first part of an extensive Lee interview in Fango #227, on sale September 16.
