‘Mother’s Day’ Remake Begins Lensing in August

Production Weekly is reporting that the remake of Troma’s cult classic Mother’s Day starts filming August 24th in Winnipeg, Canada and is scheduled to wrap October 9th. Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II-IV, Repo!) is getting behind the camera from a screenplay by up-and-coming writer Scott Millam. The original “Mother’s Day” revolved around three female friends who, while camping, run afoul of two brothers who engage in murder and rape to impress their deranged mother. The remake sees the villainous family return to the house where they grew up and terrorize the new owners and their guests.
