Corn Kids is getting a reboot by producer Lucas Foster (Ford v ferrari). After completing shooting for the film under unique circumstances in Australia, which defined the current state of the world, Foster gave an interview. He revealed that this new take on the horror classic is drawing most of its cues from the original Stephen King short story rather than the 1984 outing, a version that most general viewers are familiar with.
“[It has] Almost nothing to do [the 1984 movie]. We went back to the story and were free from there. “
The cast of the young cast selected for the remake include Elena Kampuris (before I fall) And Kate Moyer (When hope calls) In starring roles. There is also Australian talent Callan Mulvey (Avengers: Endgame) And Bruce Spence (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King). It was particularly difficult for the young actors to be involved in the film and the lockdown during the global emergency, as Foster goes on to explain.
“We took hundreds of measures. We didn’t believe in the whole. Instead, we broke down every scene differently. Night. Crowd. Difference. And so on, assessing different levels of risk.”
Many films are now coming back into production only. Shooting to resume soon Batman, Avatar 2 And Marvel‘s Chang-Chi. This is what Lucas Foster said about working in a post-quarantine invoice where a worldwide epidemic is still raging.
“You might like everyone about the security protocol, but you don’t really know until you get on set. But I can tell you now that it’s impossible to keep the camera crew 1.5 meters apart.”
Security manager John Heaney was in charge of running the show under these unprecedented circumstances. Australia has protocols to ensure the safety of everyone on set. Producer Lucas Foster explains that he bought his insurance cover early, although many companies are refusing to include compensation for the infection of the disease.
“We had insurance before hitting the ground, and I made sure to pay the premium before I moved to the US. I treated the film like an indie film with no errors and lots of insurance. . We didn’t. Use a completion bond. If we had, we might have been considered unfit and closed. “
While 1984 children of the Corn Today seen as something of a horror classic, often with scenes and dialogues quoted in pop culture, the film was not well received by critics upon its release. The acting of the Titanic children working in the film and the standard slasher trope was seen as detracting from the quality of the source material. In fact, Stephen King himself wrote the script for the 1984 film, which was rejected by another writer in favor of re-enacting the plot in a standard horror-thriller.
So fans of Stephen King will no doubt hear that the remake will be seen as a writer’s short story for inspiration rather than a film. Original short story, also titled children of the Corn, Originally appeared in the 1977 Penthouse issue, and later collected in King’s 1978 collection night shift.
The short story tells the story of a vacationing couple who arrive in the small, isolated town of Gatlin, rural Nebraska. There they realize that the adults of the city were all killed by an army of children, and they are the next target. The rest of the story follows the couple’s attempts to escape the fate of the city’s adults at the hands of their murdered children.
Interestingly, a similar premise was introduced in the horror franchise recently Frightening, Children who are being disguised by evil forces in killing their families. new children of the Corn The film may have similar things to the franchise compared to the 1984 film, not least because the upcoming remake is also set in the present-day rather than the action set in the 1970s.
Hopefully, all will pay off with a satisfying new movie experience for horror fans to enjoy the risk and hard work. Variety was the first to deliver this news.
