Back in 2020 as the world was shutting down, a remake of a Stephen King short story-turned movie was filming in Sydney. Under strict COVID protocols, filming of ‘Children of the Corn‘ was completed in June 2020. Now, almost 3 years later the film is set to have its theatrical release on March 3rd before being released via demand and digital on March 21st (according to Deadline).
‘Children of the Corn’ follows a 12 year old girl in Nebraska who is possessed by a spirit in a dying cornfield. She recruits the other children in her small town to go on a bloody rampage and kill all the adults and anyone else who opposes her. A bright high schooler who won’t go along with the plan is the town’s only hope of survival.
Congratulations to the MCTV members who stuck to the strict COVID protocols and travelled to Richmond and Rylestone for filming at a difficult time. The local industry was very lucky to be able to film in some capacity throughout the pandemic thanks to your diligence. Sydney’s international reputation as a safe haven for film has been strengthened through projects such as this one. Well done!
