Original director Sandor Stern returns for remake of creepy dummy flick Pin

Jan. 11, 2011by: Alex DiVincenzo

A remake of 1988's PIN is currently in the works. Although the original is often forgotten, it's no surprise that another redux is coming. What makes this news exciting is that director Sandor Stern is returning to helm the picture. He is also co-writing the script with Jack Reher.

Stern, who wrote THE AMITYVILLE HORROR screenplay, adapted the original script from a novel by Andrew Neiderman. In the film, Ursula and Leon are sister and brother, living alone, save for a large wooden puppet they call "Pin" (for Pinocchio). When Ursula starts hanging around with new boyfriend Stan, Leon and Pin take action.

No other information is available at this time, but we'll keep you updated. If you've never seen the original, it's worth checking out. You can pick up the DVD here.

Extra Tidbit: Cynthia Preston (above) starred in the original PIN with David Hewlett and Terry O'Quinn.

Scared the hell out of me as a kid.

I am soooo glad this is getting a remake. It never got a theatrical because the studio went under by the time it was in post. This was back in the day of Orion, Golan-Globus, Cannon, etc. It's awesome that Sander Stern is returning to the director's chair for it. I read a snippet of a new interview with him and the new writer, they're really digging deeper into the novel.

Wow, Pin. I have really vivid memories of watching this film years ago. Kind of an oddball classic in its own weird little way.

Hopefully it's closer to the novel than the original was.

Best thing about this is maybe the original will get a bluray release now.

Uh-oh....

Once again, another unnecessary remake. The original is great, has really good acting, has a creepy vibe to it, and is an all around good movie. It makes me wonder if Sandor Stern is thinking that he screwed it up the first time, so he needs to do it better the second time. That is so not the case. It's a very underrated movie, and worth checking out. Plus it has Terry O'Quinn from the original Stepfather. He needs to return to horror rather than doing whatever he's doing now. That's

That's where his strengths lie, in my opinion.
