BLACK CHRISTMAS REMAKE?
Variety reports that Steven Hoban, a producer on all three of the GINGER SNAPS films, is moving forward with a remake of Bob Clark?s slasher favorite BLACK CHRISTMAS. Hoban was one of the partners in 49th Parallel, which was behind this year?s pair of SNAPS sequels, and while that company recently disbanded, Hoban is now working on the CHRISTMAS redux through his new Copper Heart outfit. The original film?s director, Bob Clark, will be an executive producer on the update, with no one announced for the helm as of now. The 1974 CHRISTMAS was set in a sorority house where the girls (including Olivia Hussey and Margot Kidder) are terrorized by an obscene phone caller who begins killing them off at holiday time.
