The thing about reduxing THE EYES OF LAURA MARS is, in the interim since, the concept of a female that has psychic visions of a serial killer taking out his prey has been done to, pardon, death throughout 90’s made-for-cable thrillers, so this would need a new twist to bring something fresh to the original story. That or… a really hot chick in the Laura Mars role.
Chris Fisher, director of the upcoming sequel S. Darko, told audiences at Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors that he’s remaking the Carpenter-written 1978 film The Eyes of Laura Mars. A first draft is complete and shooting is expected to begin this fall.
On the casting front, Fisher said he would love to cast Darko co-star Briana Evigan as Mars. As long as she was willing to do nudity.
Directed by Irvin Kershner, the original film starred Faye Dunaway as a photographer who can see what a killer sees when he commits acts of murder.
Now BLACK MOON RISING – there’s a Carpenter-penned film I’d salivate to see done over. A hi-tech car that can jump buildings is a concept I can’t get enough of.
