Despite the unfortunate news of producer Debra Hill passing away recently, The Fog remake of John Carpenter's 1981 original is pushing full-steam (sorry) ahead.
As stated in the official press releases, filming began on the Revolution Studios project on March 24th in Vancouver. The Fog is being directed by Rupert Wainwright (Stigmata) and is due to be released later this year (the plan for the US release is October 14th).
The film stars Tom Welling, Maggie Grace, Selma Blair, DeRay Davis and Rade Serbedgia, and John Carpenter is also involved in a producing role.
Revolution Studios Partner Todd Garner:
“The Fog is one of the true classics of the horror genre, and we are thrilled to be updating it for today’s audience. We are working with a tremendously talented young cast and director along with two accomplished filmmakers, John Carpenter and David Foster. We hope that this film serves as a lasting legacy to the late Debra Hill, who was instrumental in making this film possible.”
In Revolution Studio's horror/thriller The Fog there really is something out there in the dark. In the small town of Antonio Bay, a terrifying and malevolent force hidden within a thick and eerie fog terrorizes its residents. Shrouded by the fog lies a ghastly secret of merciless revenge, one that the town’s inhabitants would do well to unravel – before it’s too late.
