Producer Talks Creature from the Black Lagoon Remake

Though a director hasn’t been officially named as of yet producer Marc Abraham dished a little bit recently on the long talked about remake of the classic flick The Creature from the Black Lagoon!

In an interview with Bloody Disgusting Abraham dropped the following on fans:

“We’ve gone through a bunch of different incarnations of scripts, and none that me and my partner were satisfied with. Gary Ross is involved with us as a producer [along with] his wife, Allison [Thomas]. None of us have been satisfied. I think we have a really cool take on the movie now – [a] much hipper, [more] interesting version of it, and we’re looking for a new writer who’s after that. And, in fact, I just had breakfast and I was writing down my notes about it, about how I think it should go. I think we have a really cool take on it. Still set in South America, really a more ‘not-a-guy-in-a-rubber-suit’…[it’s a] much more psychological transformation, more literary transformation. I think a really interesting idea.”

The words ‘not-a-guy-in-a-rubber-suit’ send chills down my spine, and leave me kind of speechless. Hit up the above link for more and let us know what you think below.

    Keeping the MAN in “Gillman” is important for this one; I don’t want it to be some generic new creature. Gotta keep the iconic look around in some way to justify the title.

    Hipper. <-- Ummm, no, hipper is so 90's. How about using the words 'smart' and 'entertaining' instead? Oh wait, did you forget to make it smart and entertaining? Or is this article really about nothing more than someone admitting they have writer's block?

    “a] much hipper, [more] interesting version of it,”

    No thanks!
    “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

    [a] much hipper, [more] interesting version of it…

    Now those are the words that chilled me…
