Next in the line of remakes: Creepshow

MacReady

Yes, i know what you want to ask. WHY!!!??? I don't know. And i don't see any reason for remaking George Romero's and Stephen King's masterpiece too, but fact is that according to THR Warner Brothers is developing a remake. The movie will be produced by Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo Entertainment together with Taka Ichise of OZ LA and Tony Ludwig. James Dudelson, the original rights holder and director of the upcoming "Creepshow 3" is also attached to produce.

In the original anthology the storys had no connection, but in the remake it is planned that the individual stories will have interconnected characters and situations. At this time i can't tell you if Romero and King will be involved in the making, but i doubt it.

Stephen King and director George Romero - conjured up five shocking yarns, each a virtuoso exercise in the ghouls-and-gags style of classic '50s horror comics. Add the spirited performances of a fine cast (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, E.G. Marshall and King himself) and the ghoulish makeup wizardry of Tom Savini and you are able to watch the best horror anthology ever.

Now here are my 3 questions. Is it always necessary to remake masterpieces of horror cinema? Can a line up of genre gods, like "Creepshow" had it, be topped? And will this Remake-Fever ever end? I guess the answer to all the questions simply is: NO !
