Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
THE BLOB is a very interesting franchise indeed. In the 1958 original, the evil came from outer space. The 1988 version shook things up a bit offering the threat of a biological weapon direction. News and rumors of a yet another remake have been going on for quite a while now with Rob Zombie possibly involved at one point. With Zombie now out of the picture, a new film does appear to be on track.
According to Deadline, THE BLOB is gearing up for principal photography to begin this summer with Goldcrest Films co-producing and Simon West sitting in the director's chair.
West spoke a little bit about the project saying:
“With modern CGI we can now fully realize the potential of The Blob. The world I create will be totally believable, immersive and emotionally satisfying. It’s a thrill to introduce an enduring icon to a wider audience and a whole new era of fans.”
Also producing are Brian Witten and Richard Saperstein with Korea's Taewon Entertainment and A-List Corporation co-financing. Jack H. Harris, who produced the 1958 film, will be executive producing with Laurence Freed, Judith Parker Harris, and Shara Kay.
