For those of you who are unaware, a Plan 9 From Outer Space remake is on the way, which is simply entitled Plan 9, and now we have finally scored some footage from the long awaited remake. Usually I’m spitting venom at just the thought of a remake, but it appears as if John Johnson is taking a serious approach to the source material.
The film stars Brian Krause (Sleepwalkers), Mister Lobo (“Cinema Insomnia”), Matthew Ewald (“Galidor”), James D. Rolfe (“The Angry Video Game Nerd”), Monique Dupree (Bikini Bloodbath Christmas), Conrad Brooks (Plan 9 From Outer Space), Addy Miller (“The Walking Dead”), and Angela Pritchett (Porkchop).
As per their official Facebook page;
In 1959, a film was released that would live in the minds and hearts of science fiction and horror fans for years to come. That film was Edward D. Wood, Jr.’s, “Plan 9 From Outer Space”, a story about aliens re-animating the dead in order to kill Earth’s population. Though widely regarded as one of the worst films ever made, genre audiences could not resist the exuberance and love for the art of filmmaking that showed in Wood’s work.
John Johnson of Darkstone Entertainment – has remade the classic film. Simple titled “Plan 9”, the remake is a serious-minded retelling of the original story, paying homage to the spirit of Wood’s film without resorting to camp or parody. The film focuses on the horror and science fiction aspects of the original, but also is largely character-driven.It honors not only the original source material, but also Ed Wood’s intentions when he made “Plan 9 From Outer Space”.
