Rated-R For Blood And Violence

The remake of Children of the Corn, a film that promises to be a more faithful adaptation of the Stephen King short story, will be R-rated.

The film–which wrapped filming in Australia back in June, despite suffering problems caused by the pandemic, was this week certified R by the Motion Picture Association for –

“violence and bloody images,”

The remake is written and directed by Kurt Wimmer (Equilibrium) and will not draw too much from the original 1984 Children Of The Corn movie, according to producer Lucas Foster. In fact, Foster said earlier this year that the remake has –

“almost nothing to do with the original.”

“We went back to the story, and free-associated from there.”

The 1984 version was directed by Fritz Kiersch and starred Peter Horton, Linda Hamilton, John Franklin, Courtney Gains, Robby Kiger, Anne Marie McEvoy, Julie Maddalena, and R. G. Armstrong. Whilst the movie gained something of a cult following, it was not met kindly by critics. Despite this, Children Of The Corn went on to spawn a franchise that now includes ten sequels, prequels and remakes.

The reboot will star Elena Kampouris, Kate Moyer, Callan Mulvey, Bruce Spence, and Stephen Hunter.

This latest adaptation of Children Of The Corn is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2021.
