The last time I was in this cavernous building, it was 2000 and I was a beleaguered employee. Back then, it was the Wrs Film and Video Lab, notorious as the house that processed the original negative of Night Of The Living Dead.
Before it was a film lab, it had been a meat-packing plant—and a slaughterhouse. All of this seems appropriate, if not ironic, because right now, the space that used to house a bank of bulk VHS tape-transferring decks is now a grand dining room, complete with a spiral staircase winding up to a balcony. Overhead hangs a delicate crystal chandelier. In the corner is a Christmas tree. And in just a few moments, a hooded figure is going to hurl a flaming Molotov cocktail at actress Caroline D’Amore’s head.
Wrs, the lab, is no more. Now it’s the home of all the interior sets for Sorority Row. »
Stewart Hendler starts principal photography on the remake of Mark Rosman's 1983 The House On Sorority Row (simply titled Sorority Row) on October 6th in Pittsburgh. Briana Evigan & Rumer Willis are set to star in the Summit Entertainment production. Writers Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger scripted the new update.
Handler had recently helmed Whisper with Lost's Josh Holloway, while star Brian Evigan dabbled in genre work in the Fear Itself episode New Year's Day, as well as the Donnie Darko sequel S. Darko and the hit Step Up 2: The Streets. (And yes, Rumer is Bruce's daughter.)
The director set the record straight on his blog about recent rumors of a proposed PG-13 rated Sorority Row. "The good news is that three days ago, Summit changed their minds and we are full-steam ahead on the R-rated version. I can’t tell you what a relief this is from a creative sense. »
Summit Entertainment's remake of Mark Rosman's 1983 The House On Sorority Row, currently titled Sorority Row, is currently prepping to shoot in Pittsburgh this October. The film is being produced by Summit (Step Up I and II, Never Back Down, Twilight) and directed by Stewart Hendler. Actresses Briana Evigan (Step Up 2: The Streets) and Rumer Willis (The House Bunny) have been cast in principal roles, according to Nancy Mosser Casting. In Mark Rosman's original, after a seemingly innocent prank goes horribly wrong, a group of sorority sisters are stalked and murdered one by one in their sorority house while throwing a party to celebrate their graduation. »
