The legacy of effects legend Stan Winston’s 1988 Pumpkinhead will live on as the film is being rebooted, according to The Tracking Board.
The original Pumpkinhead was produced by the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group headed up by Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis went on to produce Hannibal and Red Dragon. For the rest of the franchise, the Motion Picture Corporation of America (MPCA) headed up by Brad Krevoy took the reins and is now back to produce the rebooted series, explains the site.
The ’88 film starred Lance Henriksen as a man who conjures up a gigantic vengeance demon called Pumpkinhead to destroy the teenagers who accidentally killed his son.
The franchise also saw three horrendous sequels released over the years: Pumpkinhead II: Blood and Wings, Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes, and Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud. I guess a reboot is the way to go?
