So the It’s Alive remake, which was supposed to be directed by original helmer Larry Cohen, has apparently finished its shoot and is in the final stages of production.
Upcoming Film Scores got word that Fear Dot Com/Sleepwalkers composer Nicholas Pike (who also has composed music for William Malone’s latest, Parasomnia) has been hired to score It’s Alive, which was directed by Thirteenth Floor helmer Josef Rusnak. For obvious reasons, the film just seems that much less appealing for the absence of Mr. Cohen.
Bijou Phillips, James Murray and Rachel Coleman star in the remake, which takes the ideas presented in the 1974 original about the dangers of fucking with Mother Nature to a new extreme. Millennium Films is behind the redux, so there’s another good reason not to hope for much, but we’ll keep our minds open for now…
