Nelson McCormick Signs on to Direct Stepfather Remake

R.I.P. Nelson McCormick's career.

Apparently, Screen Gems was serious about doing that remake of The Stepfather.

Last night, Variety issued a report announcing that Nelson McCormick has been tapped to direct the new Stepfather, which is being written by Joe Cardone (The Covenant) and is slated for a 2008 release.

As fans of ’80s horror flicks no doubt recall, the 1987 original starred Terry O’Quinn in the title role as a psychopath whose obsession with the perfect family leads to all sorts of untimely deaths (and — not coincidentally — awful sequels, including 1989’s Stepfather 2: Make Room for Daddy and 1992’s abominable Stepfather 3: Father’s Day). In an interesting twist, it appears the remake will swap out the original’s nubile teenage stepdaughter for a distrustful teenage stepson.

McCormick clearly has an interest in directing remakes of ’80s horror movies — he just finished work on a new version of Prom Night, which is, you guessed it, being handled by Screen Gems.
