The Blob to Be More Sci-Fi Than Horror

The Blob

Director Simon West has been making the rounds doing publicity for his film Stratton starring Dominic Cooper, but of course the subject of his new version of The Blob came up. And you may or may not like his answers…

West tells The Popcorn Muncher, “The Blob is one of the things I would like to make, and part of my reinvention is to make it more sci-fi than horror. Actually, sci-fi is my favorite genre even though I’ve never made a sci-fi film.

So, is The Blob his next project? Maybe or maybe not as he tells FlickReel, “I am not sure what I am doing next, but I would eventually like to make The Blob. I am usually working on 3 or 4 things at once in the development stage, but I never know which one will bubble to the top first.

The only things that have been confirmed so far are West’s involvement as director alongside producers Brian Witten and Richard Saperstein and actors Samuel L. Jackson and Halle Berry.

Synopsis:
A terrifying re-imagining of an enduring horror icon. Based on the 1958 sci-fi classic that starred Steve McQueen and has thrilled genre fans since.

When a band of miners uncover something hidden deep beneath the earth, they unwittingly unleash a hideous creature beyond imagination. Now the townsfolk must fight back before it destroys everything.
