Yule thriller retooled

2929 Prods. to celebrate creepy 'Christmas'

2929 Prods. has acquired remake rights to the 1974 horror thriller “Black Christmas” and hired the filmmaking team of James Wong and Glen Morgan (“Final Destination”).

Wong and Morgan will produce the pic, with Morgan writing and directing. Company principal Marc Butan plans for a September production start.

In “Black Christmas,” a killer terrorizes a sorority house during Christmas break. Directed by Bob Clark (“Porky’s”), original starred Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea and Margot Kidder.

Producing with Morgan and Wong are Victor Solnicki, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Parouse of Adelstein/Parouse Prods., Steve Hoban and Butan.

“It’s going to be a classic horror film, but it won’t be a gorefest,” said Hoban from Toronto-based Copperheart Entertainment. “This is an era of paranoia, so I think the timing could be really good, because this is a film all about paranoia.”

Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban of 2929 will exec produce with Scott Nemes, Clark and Noah Segal. Satsuki Mitchell will co-produce and oversee the project for the company.

Handling foreign distribution will be 2929 Intl., headed by Shebnem Askin.
