Twisted to Update Classic Titles



Twisted Pictures has struck deal with RKO Pictures to remake some of the 1940s films like "The Body Snatcher", "I Walked with a Zombie", and "Bedlam."

Giving ample chances for moviegoers to treasure the old times, Twisted Pictures, Evolution Entertainment's horror division known for its "Saw" series, is poised to remake a handful of classic features from the RKO library following the joint venture it successfully struck with RKO Pictures.

As an early step, both studios will bring up together three film projects to the surface, namely "The Body Snatcher", "I Walked with a Zombie", and "Bedlam", all being the updates of movies released in the 1940s. A fourth title has yet to be selected from the RKO vault.

Deal was made by Evolution co-presidents Mark Burg and Oren Koules and RKO Pictures chairman-CEO Ted Hartley who are currently out to writers and directors for the flicks. The three are also said to produce each film alongside Twisted Pictures prexy Carl Mazzocone with Jonathan Marshall executive producing.

"We've thought a long time about how to update these classic titles to make them commercial," Burg remarked. "If these films go well, we hope it leads to more."
