Screen Daily reports that Screen Australia is backing FG Film Productions and Rising Sun Pictures’ Patrick, with Bankside Films handling international sales and Umbrella Entertainment distributing in Australia.
Mark Hartley directs the remake from a screenplay by Justin King. Richard E. Grant (Dracula, Corpse Bride), Rachel Griffiths (Blow) and Sharni Vinson (You’re Next!) all star.
Here’s the latest plot crunch: “For three years Patrick has been lying mute and immobile, a patient in Dr Roget’s clinic for the comatose. Dr Roget has been discharging increasingly large doses of electricity into Patrick’s brain, hoping for a sign of brain function. When young nurse Kathy starts working at the clinic, Patrick figures out how to utilise all that pent up power with deadly effect.”
The redo is a re-imagining of Richard Franklin’s 1970s chiller.
