Deadline is reporting that a new version of The Abominable Snowman is getting underway courtesy of Hammer. The screenplay, by Pusher scribe Matthew Read and Angel Of Death‘s Jon Croker, puts a contemporary twist on the 1957 original which hails from Hammer’s own archives. That film starred Forrest Tucker, Peter Cushing and Maureen Connell and followed a British scientist who joins an American expedition in the Himalayas as they search for the legendary yeti. The new film will be a modern take on the yeti myth and see an expedition’s illegal ascent up a formidable, unclimbed peak which accidentally awakens an ancient creature.
