Is Creature From the Black Lagoon Coming Back as a Remake?
I think wo all know the answer to this question!! CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON remake has been in development hell for quite some time, but THR is now reporting that a writer may have been found. According to THR, Dave Kajganich, who wrote the Nichole Kidman mess of a flick, THE INVASION and is currently working on remakes of Stephen King’s IT, THE STAND, and PET CEMETARY, has been hired by Universal to write the script for CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON.
Dave Kajganich, who wrote the Daniel Craig-Nicole Kidman thriller The Invasion several years ago, has been tapped to pen Universal’s remake of Creature From the Black Lagoon … Despite earlier reports, Carl Rinsch is not attached to direct.
The 1954 movie centered on a prehistoric water-breathing humanoid monster that lived in a remote Amazonian river and a group of scientists that want to study him.
The studio has been trying to remake the title since the early 1980s and Kajganich is starting from scratch.
Seriously? SInce the 1980s?? The early 1980s??? The way Hollywood cranks out most of the remakes this is really hard to believe that no one could write a decent remake of CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON.
More news on this one as it comes in.
