Pixar to remake Asian body Shocker
“Toy Story” makers Pixar are to do an animated remake of the banned Korean horror “Mother Death”
The film is about Mother Death, a true life sadistic chainsaw wielding former nurse who murdered women and children in Pyongpan in the 1960’s. She was later captured by North Korea and tortured to death.
Head of Pixar, Oscar winner John Lasseter, describes his delight at securing the rights to the family tale.
“Its great. The kids will love it. Mother Death was banned in Korea and Japan but I think a US audience will be way more receptive. We expect to make millions from the mechandising. McDonalds have been in touch to do a Mother Death Happy Meal”, he gloated.
