We’re okay with this but will it be done right?

The original film came out in 1957 and starred Peter Cushing under the direction of Val Guest.  Nigel Kneale penned the script and the BBC play it was based upon.  It concerned an expedition in the Himalayas and the search for a Yeti.Pretty straight forward and of course Cushing was an amazing character in the original.

Producer Ben Holden (of Hammer’s The Woman in Black) is going to produce.  In the updated version “a scientific expedition’s illegal ascent up a peak of one of the World’s most formidable mountains accidentally awakens an ancient creature that could spell certain death for them all.”

Matthew Read and Jon Croker penned the script.

More on this soon.
