Bousman Helms “Mother’s Day” Remake

Twisted Pictures, The Genre Company Rat Entertainment and LightTower Entertainment teaming to produce the potential horror franchise starter “Mother’s Day” says STYD.

Darren Lynn Bousman (“Repo! The Genetic Opera,” “Saw” 2-4) helms this loose remake of Charles Kaufman’s 1980 Troma Films cult horror classic which follows a family of villains.

Led by a smart, manipulative and sadistic mother, they return to the house where they grew up and terrorize the new owners and their guests.

Mark Burg, Oren Koules, Brett Ratner, Richard Saperstein, Brian Witten, Jay Stern and Carl Mazzocone will produce. Scott Milam penned the script and a Mother’s Day 2010 release is planned.
