New Trailer for The Stepfather, Based on an Original Screenplay by Donald E. Westlake

Donald E. Westlake

In other mystery movie news, has the trailer for the upcoming remake of The Stepfather, based on the movie of the same name from 1987. The screenplay for the original film was written by mystery author Donald E. Westlake (but apparently not based on any of his novels), and he had written an early draft of the new screenplay prior to his death last December.

In The Stepfather, when a teenage boy begins to suspect that his new stepfather is a notorious serial killer who preys on broken families, he races to gather the evidence that will back up his radical claim before it's too late. The original starred the then virtually unknown Terry O'Quinn (Lost) as the stepfather; Dylan Walsh takes on the role in this new version.

The Stepfather is scheduled to debut in theaters October 16, 2009. Watch the trailer below:
