David Anders, Kandyse McClure, Preston Bailey and Daniel Newman have boarded Sci Fi Channel's Children of the Corn remake into a two-hour telefilm.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie is based on the Stephen King novel and features Anders (NBC's Heroes) and McClure (Sci Fi's Battlestar Galactica) as Burt and Vicky, a couple with marital problems whose attempt at a second-honeymoon driving trip ends up taking them into a seemingly deserted rural community that conceals a grim secret among its rows of tall corn. Bailey (Showtime's Dexter) plays boy preacher Isaac, while Newman (NBC's Surface) plays his rebellious right-hand man Malachai.
The movie, set to air next year, is shooting in and around Davenport, Iowa. Donald P. Borchers is directing from his own script.
