New Hitcher director

06.20.2005

Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes Horror Recycling Plant has turned its sights on THE HITCHER, the 1986 cult classic that will get the remake treatment later this year. Bloody Disgusting has learned that Bay has found himself a director to shepherd the vision of taking THE HITCHER and transplanting it to the 21st century. While the name might not ring a bell, if you've seen MTV you've certainly seen his work. He's directed videos for such diverse artists as Jennifer Lopez, Master P, Dave Matthews Band and Hanson. As far as I know, no writer is attached yet or if one is, his name hasn't been announced yet. After releasing THE AMITYVILLE HORROR to abyssmal reviews (but decent box-office), Bay's company is working on a prequel to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. Despite the fact that Bay has a deal set up with the brothers Weinstein, HITCHER will be released through Universal's genre department Rogue Pictures. Once the Weinsteins set up their new company, Bay and Platinum Dunes are expected to resume production with their studio.
