With all the nonsense swirling about on other sites about casting, start dates, etc., it’s hard to know exactly what’s true and what’s not. Do we cover it? Should we cover it? We’ve consumed a ton of aspirin over the last week as a result. I can tell you that this will be the final mention of Re-Animator 3D here until someone signs a damned contract.
Shock Till You Drop got to the bottom of things by going to producer Ray Haboush:
“This current rumor about Elisha Cuthbert appearing in the remake of Re-Animator is just that – a rumor,” he says. “Actually the whole idea that we are remaking the movie this summer, in Spain nonetheless, is completely off base … especially as no talent – writer, director, nor actor – has been attached to this project in any capacity whatsoever. We have been discussing amongst ourselves the idea of remaking Re-Animator in 3D; however, at the moment it is still only a concept. For now, all of Brian [Yuzna]‘s attention is focused on prepping Amphibious, a creature feature to be shot in 3D, that he’s directing next month in Southeast Asia.”
And there you have it. Case closed. For now.
