Good Or Bad? Hammer To Reboot The Abominable Snowman

The Abominable Snowman

Over the course of our Halloween special, 31 Days of Scares, I (and hopefully you) spent a lot of time with the Universal Monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, and The Wolf Man). I know that these aren’t Hammer films, but the kindred spirit is there.

Having said that, and after naming such legendary monsters, there’s some awesome news to report today. Hammer will reboot its classic 1957 film, The Abominable Snowman. At present, we can only confirm that Jon Croker (The Woman in Black: Angel of Death) and Matthew Read (Pusher) are writing the script and Ben Holden (The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, The Quiet Ones) will produce.

Hammer president/CEO Simon Oakes stated:

It is exciting to draw on Hammer’s unparalleled source material in this genre, which can be reimagined and updated for a new audience.

We’ll keep you posted as this story develops and we have news about casting, director choice, and a start date.
