The Hollywood Reporter writes:
Tom Welling and Maggie Grace will star in the remake of John Carpenter’s classic horror thriller “The Fog” for Revolution Studios. Rupert Wainwright is directing and Debra Hill, David Foster and Carpenter are producing the film, which Cooper Layne is penning from the screenplay written by Hill and Carpenter for the original 1980 film.
“Fog” is set in a Northern California town where, about 100 years ago, a ship sank under mysterious circumstances in a thick, eerie fog. The ghosts of the deceased mariners return from their watery graves to seek their revenge.
Welling will play a local boat owner who never left the town, and Grace will portray a college girl who is back in her hometown for the summer. CAA-repped Welling is the star of the WB Network hit “Smallville.” He also appeared in the feature “Cheaper By the Dozen.” Grace, repped by Innovative Artists, is best known for the ABC hit “Lost.”
