While Lionsgate’s Train was supposed to be a remake of Roger Spottiswoode’s classic 1980 slasher flick Terror Train, it was later removed from the same conversation. It’s been rumored that another company was working on an actual remake of the film, which starred Jamie Lee Curtis as one of six girls targeted on a train after a prank gone wrong years earlier. It looks as if the rumors were true, read on for details.
B-D reader Joey M. tipped us off to the official website for Freefall Films where they report that a remake of Terror Train is slated to begin filming in May of this year with Alex Wright tapped to direct.
Here’s the synopsis they provided:
Amy and her friend Stephanie are set for the ultimate party weekend: a Halloween fraternity bash aboard a moving train. But when a costumed psychopath starts killing the passengers one by one, it’s up to Amy to stop the murderer.
