Filming has begun in
Vancouver on Revolution Studios’ The Fog, a remake of the classic 1981
horror/thriller of the same name. Directed by Rupert Wainwright, the film is
based on The Fog, written by John Carpenter and the late Debra Hill. The
film will be released by Columbia Pictures on October 14th, 2005.
The film is being produced for Revolution Studios by Carpenter

In The Fog, there really is something
out there in the dark. In the small town of Antonio Bay, a terrifying and
malevolent force hidden within a thick and eerie fog terrorizes its residents.
Shrouded by the fog lies a ghastly secret of merciless revenge, one that the
town’s inhabitants would do well to unravel – before it’s too late.
“The Fog is one of the true classics of the horror genre, and we are
thrilled to be updating it for today’s audience,” said Revolution Studios
Partner Todd Garner. “We are working with a tremendously talented young cast
and director along with two accomplished filmmakers, John Carpenter and David
Foster. We hope that this film serves as a lasting legacy to the late Debra
Hill, who was instrumental in making this film possible.”Tom Welling is best known for his portrayal of Clark Kent/Superman in the
