Stewart Hendler starts principal photography on the remake of Mark Rosman’s 1983 THE HOUSE ON SORORITY ROW (simply titled SORORITY ROW) on October 6th in Pittsburgh. Briana Evigan & Rumer Willis are set to star in the Summit Entertainment production. Writers Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger scripted the new update.
Handler had recently helmed WHISPER with LOST’s Josh Holloway, while star Brian Evigan dabbled in genre work in the FEAR ITSELF episode NEW YEAR’S DAY, as well as the DONNIE DARKO sequel S. DARKO and the hit STEP UP 2: THE STREETS. (And yes, Rumer is Bruce’s daughter.)
The director set the record straight on his blog about recent rumors of a proposed PG-13 rated SORORITY ROW. "The good news is that three days ago, Summit changed their minds and we are full-steam ahead on the R-rated version. I can’t tell you what a relief this is from a creative sense. As I’ve mentioned before, we’re not out to make torture porn and this still isn’t going to be an explicit exploitation picture—but it’s nice to be able to write a horror movie the way it should be.” More when we hear it!
