Early Teaser One-Sheet: Alex Winter’s Remake – The Gate 3D

We’ve been talking about Alex Winter’s proposed 3D remake of The Gate for what feels like forever now. Will it happen? If so, when? Well, things became a little bit clearer today during an interview with Winter, and we even have a teaser poster to boot!

According to an interview with Screen Read, it’s looking like the film will be ready for fall of 2011 with shooting to begin ASAP.

Winter will be working from a script penned by himself and Kerric Macdonald. Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth) and Andras Hamori are producing. The legendary H.R. Giger will be designing the creatures

When best friends Miles and Terry discover a mysterious crystalline rock in Miles’ backyard, they quickly dig up the lawn in search of more. Instead, they unearth the Gate — the opening to an underground chamber containing terrifying evil.

The teenagers soon realize the horror they have unleashed as one dire event follows another. With supernatural fiends invading suburbia, it’s up to the kids to find the secret that will lock the Gate forever…if it’s not too late.

    I could see this working pretty well, actually. Freaked is one of my favorite oddball comedies (I assume this is the same Alex Winter we’re talking about here) and if he can bring as much imagination to this as he did to that, we could have something pretty decent.

    Winter is directing kids films now, so I don’t expect this to be any good.

    The Gate, like The Monster Squad, is one of those movies that lives or dies on nostalgia. I never saw it as a kid, so it didn’t do anything for me later.

    Alex Winter is a mad genius, so I can’t wait to see what he does with this!

    One of the very, very few remakes I’m not crying blasphemy over.

    Dude! Thats the poster art for the original!

    The Gate is probably my favorite, best ever horror movie. I LOVE IT! They better not mess this up!

    Oh and Giger doing the besties is cool but sounds a little out of place, their kind of simple looking and it works for them.

      Actually, it’s not the poster for the original. It’s similar though.
