House Of Wax: 3D: New details have come across FilmJerk on the Joel Silver / Robert Zemeckis 1953 remake of the horror film, House Of Wax. The film is to be presented in 3D, according to sources...

According to casting documents obtained by FilmJerk.com, the film will now follow the mandatory 21st-century horror formula of featuring a hot young female as the lead. This time around, her name will be Carly Foster. An intelligent and driven college student, Carly is on the verge of leaving the Midwest and heading to New York, where she hopes to get a job writing for Cosmopolitan Magazine. The "perfect kid" in the Foster family, Carly often quarrels with her younger, grungier brother Nick. Although she and her boyfriend Wade are going through a rocky time in their relationship, Carly agrees to join a caravan of friends traveling though Iowa to attend a football game. When the fanbelt breaks on Wade's immaculate 1968 GTO muscle car, the group must stop in the quiet town of Athelston in the hopes of find a replacement part. With directions from a creepy, knife-obsessed guy with a collection of roadkill tails dangling around the interior of his truck, the group heads over to the only open business in town, a gas station operated by a handsome bad boy named Bo. The group of friends will need to rely on each other, as they slowly discover Bo is a madman, hell-bent on adding the group to his House of Wax.

All of the lead parts are now being cast.

House Of Wax: 3D starts filming in mid-April in Austrailia.
