Hammer To Reawaken The Abominable Snowman

British production company Hammer is to produce a new version of The Abominable Snowman, which was originally a hit for the studio in 1957.

Simon Oakes, President & CEO of Hammer and Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media, announced that the project is being developed by Hammer in association with producer Ben Holden (The Quiet Ones, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death)

Screenwriters Matthew Read (Pusher, Hammer of the Gods) and Jon Croker (The Woman in Black: Angel of Death) are updating the Yeti myth, with a tale of a scientific expedition which accidentally awakens an ancient creature at the peak of one of the world’s most formidable mountains.

The project is part of Hammer’s ongoing campaign to produce enduring British horror films, with Oakes commenting that; “The success of Let Me In and The Woman in Black has shown that there is an appetite for quality horror films so it is exciting to draw on Hammer’s unparalleled source material in this genre which can be reimagined and updated for a new audience.”
