Hammer’s 1957 film The Abominable Snowman is to be rebooted, reports ScreenDaily.

Exclusive Media-owned Hammer will develop a new version of the monster movie in association with Ben Holden, producer of the 2012 adaptation of The Woman in Black and its upcoming sequel.

In the new take on the Yeti myth, a scientific expedition’s illegal ascent up a peak of one of the World’s most formidable mountains accidentally awakens an ancient creature that could spell certain death for them all.

The original screenplay by Matthew Read (Pusher, Hammer of the Gods) and Jon Croker (The Woman In Black: Angel of Death, Desert Dancer) will put a modern twist on the original, which starred Forrest Tucker and Peter Cushing on a fateful expedition to the Himalaya.
