Goon

Among many of the remakes that have been talked about has been Joe Dante's The Howling. It seems as though the producers of his films have decided that most of his stuff is ripe for a remake since Gremlins has been rumored and Piranha is coming out soon.

According to Variety next up on the block will be The Howling: Reborn. Former studio marketing exec Joe Nimziki, who worked at New Line, MGM and Sony, will make his feature directorial debut from his own script. The film is due to start shooting in February for a Halloween release, with plot details under wraps.

The original "Howling," directed by Joe Dante from a script by John Sayles, was released in 1981 and spawned six sequels. Dee Wallace-Stone starred as a news anchor stalked by a serial killer who turns out to be a werewolf.
