HOUSE OF WAX & MORE REMAKES

Recently announced are six remakes that will be on the way in the near future. First off is Vincent Price's House of Wax being remade by Dark Castle. Dark Castle has signed up twin brothers Chad and Chris Hayes to be the latest writers on the attempt to bring HOUSE OF WAX back to the big screen in a remake according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The brothers, who have written a number of television movies including FIRST TARGET and its sequel FIRST SHOT as well as the story behind the Jet Li/Mel Gibson-produced INVINCIBLE, will adapt the picture for producers Joel Silver and Robert Zemeckis, though there's no word on whether or not the picture will come out in 3-D (well, SPY KIDS 3-D did hit, so who knows?) like its 1953 predecessor.

Second are five films from the 'godfather of gore,' Herschell Gordon Lewis being remade in 3-D. Read on for all of the bloody details...

Variety writes, 'International buying consultancy Trans-Pacific Media has teamed with the Sick-O-Scope Motion Picture and Novelty Manufacturing Co. to produce remakes of five Herschell Gordon Lewis horror pics, turning first to 1971's The Wizard of Gore.'

'The Wizard of Gore is the story of a stage magician whose bloody tricks performed on audience members prove to be fatal. Sick-O-Scope principal Jeremy Kasten will direct.'

'Other titles in development include Blood Feast, She-Devils on Wheels, Color Me Blood Red and Gruesome Twosome.'

'Each film is budgeted under $1 million, but no financing is in place.'

'Lewis' pics were renowned for over-the-top violence, preferring cheap and accessible fake blood to costly and time-consuming special effects.'

'We will shoot simultaneously in 3-D and standard 2-D format,' said Kasten. 'Our films will be entirely updated, with equal emphasis on performance and gore, but we will keep them rooted in their origins as exploitation films.'
