No Business Like Snow Business For Raimi

Sam Raimi is to produce a supernatural horror movie featuring legendary Tibetan snow beasts, the Yeti.

Called Refuge, the films is based on a pitch from up-and-coming British director Corin Hardy and features a remote town terrorized by a Yeti. Hardy – currently best known for directing rock videos for Keane and The Prodigy – will direct from a script by fellow British writer Tom De Ville (who‘s written episodes of Primeval, Lexx and Urban Gothic).

According to The Hollywood Reporter Hardy will start off making a short film, also called Refuge, which will, “offer a teaser that can help Hardy refine his vision even as the script is being developed.”
