The Monster Squad Remake Scores Scribes

The Monster Squad Remake Scores ScribesSome movement on the Platinum Dunes remake of Fred Dekker’s 1987 classic The Monster Squad: The flick we’re all … um … dying for has found itself a pair of writers.

According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog screenwriting cousins Mark and Brian Gunn have been hired to write the remake of The Monster Squad. Rob Cohen (xXx, Stealth, The Fast and the Furious), who produced the original film, will produce and direct the new version.

The charming original film centered on a group of monster lovin’ kids (plus one scary German guy) who are tasked with saving the world from Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, the Creature, and the Mummy. No word yet on how close all parties concerned will be staying to the source material, but we do know that Paramount is interested in turning this into a franchise if it is successful.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Won’t be getting my money.

    Cohen cannot direct to save his life. I’ll just re-watch my Monster Squad blu ray instead.

    fuck this movie.

    I certainly hope they keep “Give me the amulet, you BITCH” in the movie. There’s nothing more entertaining than watching some grown man dressed up as Dracula calling some 5 year old little girl a bitch…

      They’ll modernize it:

      “Hand over the thing you noob!”

    A “Monster Squad” franchise? Wow. Can’t wait. Yippy.
