Darren Lynn Bousman, folks, is a name that’s taken a LOT of punishment lately. After the gigantic gold-plated floparoo that was Repo The Genetic Opera (thing lost something like ninety percent of its shooting budget in box offices), he’s back, and he’s doing remakes. This is somewhat safer territory, but a remake of Mother’s Day may be a little too…obscure…to help out.
But he’s got plenty of terror hotties involved in this one–Jaime King and Rebecca De Mornay just a few among them–and that’s got a good boost to it. There’s a behind the scenes featurette making the rounds, so catch it if you want to see how things are going.
For a quick refresher on the plot, three brothers are heading home to see their mother after escaping the clutches of justice, but they discover that mom lost the house to foreclosure. Now, the three decide they’re going to get mom’s house back…one way or another.
The film looks to be released on Mother’s Day, but no one’s sure if it’ll match that date.
