Hammer Plans Remake of 1957 Arctic Horror 'Abominable Snowman'

Abominable Snowman

Over the past few years, Hammer has returned to the horror game with films like Let Me In, The Woman in Black (which has a sequel on the way) and the forthcoming supernatural horror The Quiet Ones. Now they're adding one more project to the mix that feels appropriate for the forthcoming winter season. Hammer just sent over a press release announcing a new version of The Abominable Snowman, inspired by the iconic 1957 horror film from the company's archives. This new version comes from writers Matthew Read (Pusher) & Jon Croker (The Woman in Black sequel), and puts a modern spin on the tale.

In this version, a scientific expedition’s illegal assent up an unclimbed peak of one of the World’s most formidable mountains accidentally awakens an ancient creature that could spell a certain end for them all. It's been quite a long time since a legitimate horror film tackle the Yeti myth, so this could be a fresh monster movie if it's done the right way. If it's as stylish as Hammer's films like Let Me In and The Woman in Black, then this should make for some solid horror. We're just hoping that it's not done with found footage, because we're getting a little sick of that now.

Brilliant! At one point Crash Mcreery (the raptors from JP, Rango, Davy Jones) was gonna design!
