After spending an hour Sunday night wooing over “Jessica” in HBO’s vampire drama “True Blood” (and then watching people tweet about how hot she is), it’s exciting news to hear that Deborah Ann Woll will be starring in Mother’s Day, the remake of Charles Kaufman’s 1980 Troma cult classic being directed by Darren Lynn Bousman. 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, slightly expanded to include a daughter (Woll), return to the house where they grew up and terrorize the new owners and their guests. The makers are eyeing a spring release timed for Mother’s Day with a shoot to begin in the fall in Manitoba.
