The Swarm Remake Buzzing About Hollywood

See now this is a remake we can get behind! At two plus hours long, the original 1978 Irwin Allen disaster Bee-movie, The Swarm, was one of the single most boring cinematic experiences I can ever recall having. Really, it’s insufferable. So why not redo a movie that sucks and deserves another chance. Please, Hollywood, make this your latest trend.

According to The Wrap producers Roy Lee (The Ring) of Vertigo Entertainment and Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity) of Room 101 are developing a remake of The Swarm.

The original starred Michael Caine (who has since disowned the movie) as an entomologist who learns that killer bees from South America have been coming together to form huge swarms. He sets out to stop the military from attacking and worsening the imbalance in nature, ultimately teaming up with them to prevent the deadly swarm from reaching Houston.

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

    It should be directed by Roland Emmerich.

    • ChaosWeaver

      And starring Nicolas Cage.

    Very much agree UC!!!!!
    Stop remaking (or whatever of the 16 other terms used) classics,cult classics,films that were already great and do not need redone. Focus on films that weren’t all that glorious,but have true potential if redone better.

    This could be an opportunity to have some fun. I’d like to read some opinions. So,question for discussion.

    “If you could pick ONE horror movie from the past that you believe could be improved on or benefit from it being remade/reimagined maybe due to lack of tech or maybe the story was A+ but the directing was an E-, what would it be?”

      Actually they already did it: The Amityville Horror. Alas, the remake turned a terrible movie into one that was barely competent and easily forgettable.

      I’m not so interested in remakes as I am in sequels to movies or franchises I feel deserve further exploration.

      i.e. I’d love a PROPER Hellraiser sequel. I’d also like to see one for Event Horizon where hell literally collides with Earth.

      Oh, and one more Phantasm to wrap it all up.

      I can’t say At The Earths Core was an an A+ story but I think a remake could be fun. Empire of the Ants too.

      I used to say that about The Land That Time Forgot but then that was remade and it wasn’t fun. Not fun at all.

    Heh…that’s great news! I hope it happens.
