Hammer related news

This is now a little bit old, but just for the record:

Hammer has been sold… yet again, this time to a consortium that includes Big Brother creator John de Mol. They intend to spend an initial $50m on new films. Yes, we’ve been there before, so let’s wait and see. Good news is that this new company at least has a track record in producing stuff.

More on this.

The Hammer’s Columbia films will now also be released. This back catalogue includes the likes of The Camp On Blood Island, Cash on Demand, Creatures the World Forgot, The Damned, Don’t Panic Chaps, The Gorgon, Maniac, Never Take Sweets From a Stranger, The Stranglers of Bombay, Sword of Sherwood Forest, Taste of Fear, The Terror of the Tongs and Watch it Sailor.

Please also read the info about this at the official Hammer site.

Ingrid Pitt to star in a new film with Robert Quarry! Fangoria reports that “Countess Dracula will meet Count Yorga when Ingrid Pitt and Robert Quarry star in a new feature version of THE TELL-TALE HEART for writer/director Mark (DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE) Redfield, who passed on some production art (see more below). Scheduled to shoot in LA and Baltimore in late July, the feature is Redfield’s second film inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, following his darkly surreal take on the author’s last week, THE DEATH OF POE.”

Here’s the full Fangora article.
