‘Mother’s Day’ Remake Gets Theatrical Release Date

After being more than well-received at Fantastic Fest in late September, Darren Lynn Bousman’s remake of the Troma classic Mother’s Day was picked up by newly-founded Gigapix Studios for theatrical release, but nothing more specific than first quarter next year was announced for the film. Today, B-D learned that the Rebecca De Mornay and Jaime King starrer will hit the big screen on April 1, 2011. The psychology horror film tells the story of three brothers on the run from the law heading home to hide out, only to discover that their mother lost the house in a foreclosure. Their mother ingeniously orchestrates their escape, teaching the house’s new owners and their guests a few lessons along the way. Expect announcements for Gigapix’s other acquisitions, The Tortured and The Bleeding, to come in the next few weeks.
