‘Southbound’ Director Roxanne Benjamin is Remaking ‘Night of the Comet’ for Orion!



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.

Writer in the horror community since 2008. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has three awesome cats. Still plays with toys.
