Director Andy Fickman will oversee the development of four classic horror movies made by RKO Cinema from the golden age of Hollywood. The films include I Walked With a Zombie, The Body Snatcher, Bedlam and Five Came Back. Fickman will direct at least one of the films and have a producing role in the others.
Fickman's deal is with Roseblood Movie Company, the horror arm of RKO Pictures, and Twisted Pictures, the creators of Lionsgate's Saw franchise.
Three of the four classic films were produced by Val Lewton, one of the horror movie-masters from the 1930s-40s. Lewton directed I Walked With a Zombie, the best-known of the quartet of movies slated to be remade. "After Frankenstein and the Wolfman came Lewton and RKO, and what they lacked in budgets they made up for with atmosphere, imagination and great directors making horror with psychological flair," Fickman told Variety. "It was on the heels of WWII, when Nazi Germany showed that the scariest enemy might be the person who looked like your next door neighbor. It didn’t have to be some creature."- Variety.
