'Valentine' remake fit for a King


Jaime King has given her heart to Lionsgate's "My Bloody Valentine 3-D," being directed by Patrick Lussier.

King will star in the remake of the 1981 slasher film about a murderer who kills those who celebrate Valentine's Day. She will play Sarah Palmer, a woman who has married her teenage sweetheart's nemesis, and the pair have a child together. When she and her first love are reunited, it becomes clear that she still carries a torch for the man.

Zane Smith wrote the screenplay.

Jack Murray along with John Dunning and Andre Link will executive produce. Executive producers for Lionsgate are Mike Paseornek and John Sacchi.

Production is slated to begin May 12. A Jan. 23, 2009, release is planned.

King ("Sin City"), repped by WMA, recently wrapped production on Frank Miller's "The Spirit" and will be seen in the upcoming "Fanboys."
