Creature remake news


More on the status of the remake.

Here's what producer Marc Abraham told BD about the flick:

"We’ve gone through a bunch of different incarnations of scripts, and none that me and my partner were satisfied with. Gary Ross is involved with us as a producer [along with] his wife, Allison [Thomas]. None of us have been satisfied. I think we have a really cool take on the movie now – [a] much hipper, [more] interesting version of it, and we’re looking for a new writer who’s after that. And, in fact, I just had breakfast and I was writing down my notes about it, about how I think it should go. I think we have a really cool take on it. Still set in South America, really a more 'not-a-guy-in-a-rubber-suit'…[it's a] much more psychological transformation, more literary transformation. I think a really interesting idea."

Uhm what? Now this doesn't sound too groovy to me........

  1. Amen JT, I think I just lost my lunch with this statement ..."a more 'not-a-guy-in-a-rubber-suit'…[it's a] much more psychological transformation, more literary transformation." Why don't they just remake it with the storyline the way it was, but I think there needs to be a good combination of CGI and real-time actors.
