Further proof the country is stuck in a recession is the fact Carrie Fisher is in talks to join the cast of Sorority Row, a remake of The House on Sorority Row (1983).

I guess Fisher, a go-to-gal for script doctoring in latter years, is in desperate need of some $$ if she’s willing to debase herself in the name of yet another soulless remake (another for Hollywood, not Fisher).

Rumer Willis, Julian Morris, Leah Pipes, Margo Harshman, and Briana Evigan (Fear Itself: New Year’s Day) are already lined up as sorority sisters.

In addition to Fisher, Samurai Girl star Jamie Chung and Audrina Patridge from The Hills are set to join the cast, too.

Stewart Hendler will direct this new rip-off, while Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger will script.

The update will focus on  a group of sorority sisters trying to cover up the death of their house-sister after a prank goes off the rails. Naturally, they’re stalked and killed one by one by a serial killer after the initial mayhem.

Shooting gets underway in early October, in Pittsburgh.

You should’ve negotiated a better contract as far as residuals goes when you starred in the first Star Wars trilogy, Carrie.
