Brittany Snow will take a stab at the lead role in Screen Gems' unnecessary remake of the slasher pic "Prom Night."
In the Paul Lynch-directed 1980 original, a group of high school seniors are terrorized by a mask killer whose motive appears to have something to do with the death of a young girl six years earlier.
Nelson McCormick is directing the new "Prom Night," with Neal Moritz producing.
Although Variety doesn't specify, Snow will presumably take on the Jamie Lee Curtis role.
Probably best known for her wholesome turn on NBC's "American Dreams," Snow has been working against that image with a recurring turn on "Nip/Tuck" and in features like "John Tucker Must Die." She's already completed work on "Finding Amanda" and a supporting role in "Hairspray."Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
