Well, Hollywood has decided that it's time to revisit a classic film, and update it for today's audience. Will it work? I don't know. Do I care? Yeah, I'm a little interested in this movie. Do you want to hear my opinion any more? Of course not, so here is the story:
Scribe Tedi Sarafian will write a remake of The Creature From the Black Lagoon for producer Gary Ross' Universal-based Larger Than Life company, says Variety. Ross' father, Arthur Ross, penned the script of the original 1954 creature feature.
The original "Creature," which featured the Gill Man terrorizing archaeologists in the Amazon while falling in love with a beautiful girl played by Julia Adams, became a camp classic.
Sarafian previously was tapped to script Warner Bros.' "Terminator 3" after James Cameron, writer and director of the first two "Terminator" pics, said he didn't want to write a third installment. Star Arnold Schwarzenegger had publicly declared he wouldn't perform in a non-Cameron story, but relented after seeing Sarafian's draft.
