The treasure trove of Stephen King remakes continues on with Kurt Wimmer's upcoming remake/retelling of Children of the Corn. The film, which luckily avoided the coronavirus shutdown, has officially wrapped production in Australia. The governmental orders allowed for the film to continue shooting despite the virus as long as safety measures were fully upheld. Producer Lucas Foster has revealed via Deadline that the movie has completed its shoot and will move on to post production:

“We’re thrilled to be able to announce the completion of principal photography with Elena, Kate, Callan and Bruce who lead our cast on this reimagining of Stephen King’s timeless short story. We’d like to thank our cast and crew for their unrivaled professionalism, banding together to work to bring this movie to life. It was incredibly important to us to us to keep our production alive and to keep people employed and productive for as long as we could do so safely, during this crisis. We accomplished that – no one got sick and we all figured out how to work together as a team to do our jobs while keeping our cast, crew and workplace, safe and secure. We’d also like to thank Screen NSW, Safe Work NSW and all those vendors and suppliers who worked with us as valuable partners during the shoot to ensure the health and safety of our cast and crew was protected.”

This new Children of the Corn will feature the events leading up to and following through the murder of all the adults in a small rural community. It's said that this will not be connected in any way to the 1984 film but offers a new "free associated" telling of the King story.
