RKO's Roseblood Movie Co. and Twisted Pictures have signed on Adam Marcus to direct I Walked with a Zombie, which is a remake of the 1943 Val Lewton classic.
According to Variety, Marcus (Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday), has written the script with Debra Sullivan, his writing partner on the Val Kilmer starrer Conspiracy.
The film focuses on a private tutor who discovers a terrifying family secret while working at the ancient estate of a New Orleans businessman. The original was a forerunner of the corps of walking corpse films that followed. Hartley called the film one of the most valuable in the RKO library.
No production date has been set.
