Bloody Disgusting is reporting that a script is complete for a remake of horror classic ‘Pumpkinhead’ from Paramount Pictures sub-division Paramount Players, with news on production start date and a director announcement expected soon.

Lance Henriksen starred in the original Stan Winston-directed 1988 creature feature as Ed Harley, a grieving father who conjures up the titular monster in an effort to kill those who took his young son from him.

A few years back, Peter Block was announced to be producing the new film from a screenplay by Nate Atkins.

The franchise spawned three sequels, the 1994 Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings, as well as the made-for-TV follows ups Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes and Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud, broadcast on Syfy in October 2006 and on February 10, 2007, respectively.

Pumpkinhead was also turned into a comic book and even a poorly-received video game, Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead’s Revenge, back in 1995.
