LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Producer Chris Moore, who got his start collaborating with actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, will make his directorial debut on “Race With the Devil,” the remake of a 1975 horror thriller.
The original, released by 20th Century Fox, centered on two couples who head off to Colorado for skiing and dirt biking. Along the way, they witness a satanic sacrifice, but when they call the local authorities, all evidence disappears. They resume their vacation but find themselves shadowed by a cult.
Peter Fonda and Loretta Swit starred in the original.
The film is being updated for the production outfit Regency Enterprises by writers Drew McWeeny and Scott Swan.
Moore had been partners in the LivePlanet production venture with Affleck, Damon and Sean Bailey. Among Moore’s producer credits are the “American Pie” movies, the “Project Greenlight” movies, “Joy Ride” and Affleck and Damon’s breakout hit “Good Will Hunting.”
