Adrienne Barbeau Would Love to Reprise her ‘Fog’ Role
I have a mega soft spot for John Carpenters The Fog, so much so that every 21st of April I make a point of watching the horror classic. This is of course the date that a strange fog rolled in on Spivey Point and terrorised the small town. Adrienne Barbeau is the actress that played plucky radio broadcaster Stevie Wayne and despite a Stellar cast including, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh and Tom Atkins, Barbeau was the films stand out performance. It was her first major film role, and one that she clearly loved.
Recently, over at Tom Hollands Terror Time, Barbeau sat down with Noah Manginelli to chat about her career and said that she would love to reprise her role as Stevie.
“THTT: Would you be interested in still being a part of The Fog’s universe? In other words, if The Fog, at some point, was to be made into a television series, like every other classic film is nowadays, would you be interested in reprising your role as Stevie Wayne?
AB: I’d love it if I could reprise Stevie Wayne again. She’s one of my favorites.
THTT: Though the remake has gotten mixed reviews, say the film IS resurrected as a series or even as a mini-series, who would you say should be behind it? John Carpenter, somebody else, or do you think you’d be up to take the reins, so to speak…
AB: Not with me ‘at the reins’ as you ask. I’m sure there may be directors out there who could do a good job, but no one, no one can direct that project like John Carpenter could.”
With the latest craze of turning films into TV series, it’s possible that we could get a Fog TV show, considering the films popularity, though there’s nothing currently in works. But if it did go down that road, there’s certainly one actress eager to get involved.
As for the awful 2005 remake and Selma Blair’s portrayal of her beloved character, Barbeau simply had this to say.
“I haven’t seen the remake of The Fog. Can’t imagine I ever will. So…can’t compare.”
Yep…wise move there! That film was a travesty!
