Brad Fuller has been tweeting up a storm lately, updating fans on the status of a bunch of projects. Next one up? The Platinum Dunes remake of the classic The Monster Squad for Paramount.
According to Fuller on Twitter, “Since a few people asked, ‘Monster Squad’ is being written and [we] hope to have a script in the next few weeks”.
Monster Squad will be directed by Rob Cohen (xXx, Stealth, The Fast and the Furious) from a script being penned by Mark and Brian Gunn.
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.
