It was only a matter of time. Here’s the deal, and we’re just going to have to accept it: If a movie is even slightly good or has even the tiniest of cult followings, Hollywood is going to remake it. There’s just no doubt of this anymore.
Bloody Disgusting caught up with John Landis today, and the director revealed all that he knew about the upcoming remake and some tasty bits about the Blu-ray that will be coming our way soon —
“Yes, Dimension is now in negotiation for the ‘An American Werewolf in London’ remake rights,” Landis tells the site. “Perhaps someone will make a brilliant movie out of it; regardless, my film comes out on Blu-ray this summer and looks amazing. I was afraid the digital cleaning of the negative would result in too clear a picture and hurt Rick Baker’s make-up, when in fact the incredibly crisp detail actually makes Rick’s stuff look even better!”
There you have it, folks. Some bad with the good. What’s next? Jaws? The Exorcist? Sorority Babes in the Slime-Bowl-O-Rama? It’s just inevitable.
