Wicker Man 3: The Wicker Rattan Lawn Furniture

I kid, I kid. I'm actually excited for Robin Hardy's sequel to his own classic 1973 film The Wicker Man, now called The Wicker Tree after a brief stint titled Cowboys For Christ. Via BD comes a link to the still pretty sparse website (that image there is about it) as well as some new-to-my-eyes info:

"Directed by Robin Hardy, and starring Christopher Lee, Joan Collins, Graham McTavish, Paul Wesley, Susie Amy, Morgan James, Natalie Parnes, in the film young Christians Beth and Steve, a gospel singer and her cowboy boyfriend, leave Texas to preach door-to-door in Scotland . When, after initial abuse, they are welcomed with joy and elation to Tressock, the border fiefdom of Sir Lachlan Morrison, they assume their hosts simply want to hear more about Jesus. How innocent and wrong they are."

They had me at Chris Lee and Joan Collins, man. Still not a word on a proper release date though.

Excellent news! Hopefully this will help wipe the memories of the abominable remake from my mind...
