    Neil Moritz Remaking The Tingler
    Source: The Hollywood Reporter
    November 15, 2004


    Producer Neal Moritz (Stealth, XXX: State of the Union) will remake the 1959 horror classic The Tingler for Columbia Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. Greg Pace is set to write the feature film.

    The original movie starred Vincent Price as a scientist who discovers an organism that grows along a person's spine when that person enters a state of extreme fear. One way to defeat the creature is to scream.

    The movie was directed and produced by noted horror master William Castle, who was known as much for his gimmicks as his movies. For The Tingler, Castle wired theater seats so that when a scream occurred during the movie, audiences felt a jolt.

    The new version will follow a scientist who, in the search for a medical cure for fear, unleashes the Tingler, an entity that kills its victims with fear.

    Terror Train Remake in the Works
    Source: Family Room Entertainment Corporation
    January 31, 2005


    In conjunction with Maverick Films and Integrated Films and Management, Emmett/Furla Films, a wholly owned subsidiary of Family Room Entertainment Corporation, has announced that they are in final negotiations to acquire the rights to remake the 1980 horror classic, Terror Train. The original picture, which was directed by Roger Spottiswoode and starred Jamie Lee Curtis, follows a group of college coeds being terrorized by a masked killer during a New Year's Masquerade on a chartered train.

    Emmett/Furla and Integrated recently partnered to set up a remake of the horror classic The Amityville Horror with NuImage and Dimension Films.

    Co-chairs of Family Room Entertainment Randall Emmett and George Furla stated: "We are very excited to be re-teaming with Steve (Whitney) and Andy (Trapani) on another horror remake. We are also thrilled to be working with Maverick Films, who bring an extraordinary depth of creative resources."

    "Suspense on a train is a classic formula that's been relatively unexplored in recent years," said Andy Trapani and Steve Whitney of Integrated Films and Management.

    Mark Morgan of Maverick Films stated: "Maverick has been looking for the right picture to collaborate with EFF and Integrated for some time. We are excited to start with 'Terror Train' and believe this to be the first of many to come."

    The producers are currently out to writers on the Pic, which is being fast-tracked.

    This is really unbelievable. Terror Train is a formula, T 'n A slasher movie. What can they possibly do different that would make this worth going to instead of renting the original?

    I agree with you that this is a stupid remake.

    But I can't agree that remaking classics are always a bad idea. Scorsese is looking to remake the classic Kurosawa film "Drunken Angel". Now I would definitely pay to see that.

    Just Leonardo DiCaprio. Cameron Diaz has only done one movie with Scorsese, so I'm not sure how she gets grouped with him.

    Diaz as an Irish woman in Gangs. Just as bad as Leonardo as the Irish kid.

    Um, yeah. I knew that, that's why I said that she was in one movie with Scorsese.
