Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's remake of the clasc 1976 slasher film "The Town That Dreaded Sundown" is in the works. The movie is based on true events about a serial killer who terrorized a tiny Texas town back in the year of 1946. At least five people were murdered and the killer has never been identified. Addison Timlin (Derailed, Zero Hour) has already been cast, along with Veronica Cartwright, Gary Cole, and Joshua Leonard.
"Cartwright will play Timlin's grandmother, who raises her after her parents are killed in a car accident. In a career spanning over 50 years, Cartwright has had many roles in genre films, including The Birds, Alien, Invaon of the Body Snatchers, and Candyman: Farewell to Flesh.
Cole will play a deputy who is chang the hooded killer. Cole is probably best known for his role in Office Space, but to me, he will always be Lucas Buck from American Gothic.
Finally, Leonard will play another deputy, this one tasked with protecting Timlin and Cartwright. His feature debut came in 1999's The Blair Witch Project; he has nce appeared in Hatchet, Bitter Feast, and Shark Night 3D. "
Shooting began back in May with the filming location taking place in Louiana.
The film is said to have a 2014 premiere.
