Revealing Images Arrive For ‘Children Of The Corn’ Reboot

The date for the widespread release for the reboot of Stephen King’s Children of the Corn may still be shrouded in mystery, but at least several images from the film have emerged from the dark.

The photos–seen on this page–offer a tantalizing glimpse into this latest attempt to capture the inherent horrors in King’s original 1977 short story, as reported by comicbook.com. The movie–rated R for “violence and bloody images”–had a very limited release last October in Florida, but still awaits a debut date for a more extensive premiere.

This adaptation of the horror master’s story–from writer/director Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium)–reportedly will be more faithful to King’s original vision and will not follow the lead of the first 1984 film (which may be a good thing).

In fact, producer Lucas Foster said this remake has “almost nothing to do” with the original movie. “We went back to the story,” Foster added, “and free-associated from there.”

The reboot–which stars Elena Kampouris, Kate Moyer, Callan Mulvey and Bruce Spence–follows “a psychopathic 12-year-old girl in a small town in Nebraska who recruits the other children and goes on a bloody rampage, killing the corrupt adults and anyone else who opposes her. A bright high schooler who won’t go along with the plan is the town’s only hope of survival.”

The Children of the Corn franchise–which includes nine sequels–started out with the 1984 movie that starred Peter Horton and Linda Hamilton (of Terminator fame). There was even a small-screen version of the film that aired on the Syfy Channel in 2009.
