According to Variety, Dylan Walsh, Sela Ward and Penn Badgley are
set to star in THE STEPFATHER, a Screen Gems remake of the 1987
thriller. Adrianne Palicki is in negotiations to round out the cast.
Screem Gems is aiming the film as more of a Hitchcock-style thriller
than the original. Story centers on a teenage boy (Badgley) who
discovers his soon-to-be stepfather isn’t all he appears. In fact, the
man who fell in love with his mother (Sela Ward), might be a psycho
who murdered his previous family. Palicki would play the boy’s
girlfriend. “Nip/Tuck” star Walsh plays the title role originated by “Lost”
star Terry O’Quinn. O’Quinn played the role in a 1989 sequel as well.
The redo will be directed by Nelson McCormick (“Prom Night”) from a
script by J.S. Cardone. Greg Mooradian and Mark Morgan of Maverick
Films will produce. Production is aimed to start in March or April.
