Plan 9 From Outer Space Remake Shoots Today
You guys remember the Ed Wood film, Plan 9 From Outer Space? Quite often with Ed Wood, well for me anyway, his films were so bad they were actually really good. It kept me entertained for a few hours anyway, and I’m sure many of you, just like me are spitting at the thought of another remake.
Now this of course, is not the first time we have heard about this, Meh has wrote about this upcoming remake on numerous occasions and on reading up about the remake, I actually really want to see this happen.
Anyway, according to the guys over at The Roanoke Times, filming of Plan 9 (The title of the remake) begins today in Roanoke, Virginia which is being directed and produced by John Johnson and hopes to wrap up by April 25th. They will then release the film via Darkstone Entertainment on DVD worldwide.
“Essentially, he’s taken Wood’s idea, in which aliens revive the dead to attack the living in a plot to take over the world, and written his own version. His goal is to create a straightforward, low-budget, horror picture tinged with humor. He cites iconic1980s flicks such as “Fright Night” and “Lost Boys” as models.”
