Maximum Overdrive Remake Wheels Starting to Spin

The year was 1986, and the directorial debut of horror icon Stephen King roared off of the big screen like a big bloody fun behemoth. The AC/DC soundtrack kicked ass, the Green Goblin’s head has never been the same, and to this very day we refuse to look at any appliance the same way ever again.

Can a remake of this cult classic capture the same kind of magic? Who knows, but according to Variety Dino De Laurentiis Co. has one waiting in the wings.

The original film focused on what happened when the earth passed through the tail of a mysterious comet and the machines on Earth suddenly came to life and terrorized their human creators.

In terms of news regarding this upcoming remake, that’s really all there is at the moment. Don’t worry, though; we’ll keep our ears to the ground, and if those big-ass semis start rolling, you’ll be the first to know about it.

    Okay, Firestarter I can understand, but this? They must seriously be joking.

    Maximum Overdrive was already remade as “Trucks”, the titel of the original short stroy in 2000 for television.

    Was not that bad.

    Lets hope they can make a serious horror movie based on the short and not Maximum Overdrive…which is pretty bad.

    The mind is like a parachute…it only works when it is open.

    So what they’re now remaking all Dino De Laurentiis back catalgoue? Wellk they’re better not redo Manhunter, oh wait……..

    I am one of the few people on this earth that actually enjoyed the original.
    Seriously this could be redone and be quite good. Besides it can’t possibly be worse than that other version they did back in 2000.
