for the past few months, these have been considered-
a remake set in the US with Nicholas Cage
(it’s been mocked by TWM director Robin Hardy)
a Hardy-produced film in the same religious horror genre entitled THE RIDING OF THE LADDIE about a young US C’tian couple (suggested cast Sean Astin & Leann Rimes) who come to evangelize a Scottish community which is pagan & presided over by Christopher Lee & Vanessa Redgrave. It’s NOT supposed to be a sequel to TWM, just similar in tone
one site mentioned in passing a sequel concept (written I think by original writer Anthony Schaffer, now dec’d) in which a burn-disfigured Sgt. Howie survives
Does anyone know anything new about any of these?
What are TWM-fans here feelings about them?
(I fear the idea of a Cage remake but admit I’ll watch it just out of curiosity; I’m excited about RIDING- but I don’t expect any real work on it till LOTR III is released; I’d love to know more about the Sgt Howie lives idea)
Also- how would YOU go about a WICKER MAN project?
(I have an idea based on the Sgt. Howie lives concept- and on his prediction about what would happen IF the crops did not grow the next year.)
Finally, what would have happened IF Howie had shagged Willow (Britt Ekland)? Would the whole plan have been ruined?
