Remake Pile: May 2010

May 28, 2010

Logan’s Run

It looks like Warner Bros. has director Carl Erik Rinsch on board to direct the remake of the 1970’s Dystopian classic Logan’s Run. Rinsch has never directed a feature film before but has opened many eyes with his five minute short film, The Gift, which was made as a commercial for Phillips televisions. (Source)

Child’s Play

Brad Dourif, the original voice of Chucky, has signed on to reprise his role as the bloodthirsty doll. That is a good thing. Don Mancini, writer of the awesome 1988 chiller Child’s Play, and writer of all the crummy sequels, has signed on to write and direct. That is a bad thing. Mancini may have had a stroke of genius when he wrote the original Child’s Play,  but since then he has turned the  iconic evil toy into a 3  foot joke. If Mancini can have a major turnaround and get back to the basics, maybe this could be good. (Source)

Plan 9 From Outer Space

The film regarded as the worst movie ever made is getting a remake. The remake will simply be called Plan 9 and it has a teaser trailer on youtube. Plan 9 will be directed by indie filmmaker John Johnson. (Source)
