Unbeknownst to us, and just about every other horror webte, a remake of CUJO is apparently heading to the big screen at some point this year. Although details are rather scant at the moment, we do have some info regarding this
project. Read on for more after the jump.
Lang Elliott, Predent & CEO of Sunn Clasc Pictures, Inc., announced that Sunn plans to produce the remake of "CUJO" this year representing the 30th Anniversary nce Sunn produced and distributed the original "CUJO" motion picture in 1983, based upon Stephen King's novel. The 1983 veron was highly successful at the worldwide box-office and, compared with today's inflation and higher ticket prices, the box-office would be well over $225 million even without ancillary sales (i.e., DVD, cable, free televion, pay-per-view, etc.).
"CUJO" is the story of a large, playful St. Bernard dog that is transformed into a hideous killing machine after being infected by rabies. Donna Trenton's car is on the fritz, and she and her son take her ailing automobile to their mechanic. Upon their arrival, the car stalls and refuses to restart. The mechanic fails to appear so Donna searches for him. The transformed, maniacal "CUJO" reveals himself; he is highly agitated and very aggresve. Donna hardly recognizes this filthy, monstrous creature foaming at the mouth. Suddenly "CUJO" charges Donna, who barely makes it back into the car for protection. Trapped with her son and the windows rolled up, the sweltering heat begins to take its toll. "CUJO's" powerful state of insanity and violence await.
