Dry County zones for ‘Chopping Mall’

Hall helming Roger Corman killer-robot remake

Robert Hall’s Dry County Entertainment is hanging out at the “Chopping Mall,” acquiring remake rights to the ’80s horror title.

Hall and producing partner Kevin Bocarde will produce and write. Hall is also coming on to direct, with lensing to begin in spring.

The original “Chopping Mall” was produced by Roger Corman and his wife Julie. It was centered around a group of teenagers who become trapped in a shopping mall with killer robots.

Bocarde said the new movie won’t be a straight remake.

“It will retain the basic concept of young people trapped in a mall; however, the story will have a darker, supernatural spin,” he said.

Recent remakes of Corman films include the Jason Statham starrer “Death Race” and last year’s “Piranha 3D.”

Hall noted that he got his start in show business at Corman’s studio.

“This is an exciting way to pay homage and honor Roger while also expanding the original film’s premise,” Hall said.

Hall and Bocarde are repped by UTA.
