Much like Eddie Murphy, Bousman's Mother's Day remake is coming to America. Bousman's latest film 11-11-11 comes out tomorrow and this is good news for horror fans as Mother's Day is a terrific remake in my opinion. It was announced today via Deadline that Anchor Bay has picked up the distribution rights and fans here in the US will get to witness the madness not just on DVD/Blu-ray but in theaters. Hell yes!
Anchor Bay is looking at a potential release for next Mother’s Day, which falls on May 13, 2012.
Per Deadline, “With Saw’s Darren Lynn Bousman at the helm and a cast featuring
Woll, Mother’s Day has an unbeatable horror pedigree,” said Kevin Kasha, Anchor Bay executive vp of acquitions and co-productions. “We’re thrilled to add this chiller to the Anchor Bay Films roster of terror clascs.”
Plot Synops: After a bank robbery gone wrong, three brothers head for home, hoping their MOTHER (Rebecca De Mornay) can provide them with a getaway. The youngest brother, JOHNNY (Matt O'Leary), has been shot, and their back-stabbing former partner has gotten away with all the cash.
But when the brothers get home, they find that all their stuff is gone and Mother is nowhere to be found: She lost the house months ago in a foreclosure. The new owners, BETH and DANIEL SOHAPI (Jaime King and Frank Grillo), and their guests, gathered for an ill-timed birthday party, become the brothers' unwitting hostages.
Not long after, Mother arrives, along with the boys' ster LYDIA (Deborah Ann Woll), and it soon becomes clear that Mother will do absolutely anything to protect her children. In one terrifying evening she brilliantly takes control of the tuation and masterminds her sons' escape from the law.
