We’re excited to report today that Roxanne Benjamin, one of the directors of our Southbound, will be remaking the 1984 horror-comedy Night of the Comet for Orion Pictures, the news broken by Deadline this afternoon. They say she’ll be penning the remake.
“The update will skew horror-sci-fi rather than comedy,” the site notes.
The cult original, written and directed by Thom Eberhardt, followed two sisters facing off against cannibal zombies after a comet wipes out most of life on Earth.
Kelli Maroney, Robert Beltran and Catherine Mary Stewart starred.
