Over the past few years we have seen a horde of reboots, remakes and sequels. Now it seems the 1983 slasher film ‘Sleepaway Camp’ has been added to that list. The cult classic is being given an over haul by Jeff Katz. Katz will co-produce the movie along side the movie’s original writer/director Robert Hilzik, Michele Tatosian.
‘Sleepaway Camp’ follows the story of Angela (Felissa Rose), a shy girl who has been sent to camp. Angela is soon being targeted by bullies. It’s not long before people, with bad intentions, start turning up dead.
The movie will be updated with a modern setting, while honoring the original. I’m glad to hear that so many people involved in the first ‘Sleepaway Camp’ will be taking part in the new movie. The news of the reboot has just begun to be released, hopefully we will hear who will star in the modern version soon. We do know that Felissa Rose, the original actress from ‘Sleepaway Camp’ will also be involved in the new movie.
