Dunes Wants Rosemary’s Baby

There's gonna be dirt in the crib!!!Is there nothing Platinum Dunes won’t toss some grit on? Freddy, Jason, Hitcher, Leatherface … not one horror icon is safe and now even the seed of Satan may be rolling around in a crib full of grittiness and Nine Inch Nails albums.

STYD has the scoop that Roman Polanski’s classic about a woman being the unwilling bearer of the Devil’s son is currently being eyed up by Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. As of right now, the team is searching for a writer to bring the tale of paranoia to the 21st Century.

Taking into account what we’ve seen in the past from Dunes, can they honestly pull off a movie that has to rely on tension and strong characters over gritty grindhouse cinema? Share you thoughts with us below.

    I have not seen the original, so for me it will be like a virgin on her wedding night – I will not be disappointed!

    NOTE: I just realised that is two sex-themed postings I have made here… paging Dr. Freud!!!

    Fuck NIN…if I’m gonna watch this…the soundtrack had better be SLAYER.

    And we’ll have Laaz Rockit do a cover of their own “Leatherface” changing the lyrics to “Here’s your invitation…to join Rosemary’s Ba-bay!” Hell…if we have to suffer through remakes, how about remakes of songs too?? Heh.

    Maybe we’ll get a Burial Ground style breast feeding bite scene!

    Please Hammer, don’t hurt them.

    When Harry Kills Sally…OK, that was some funny shit, right there.

    Dunes has yet to put out a good movie. Brainless money makers, the lot of them. I’ll pass.

  • PelusaMG

    Platinum Dunes would try and get their hand down a nun’s knickers if they got the chance… NOTHING is sacred to them!

    “Inspired by such genre classics as RE-ANIMATOR. DAWN OF THE DEAD. I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE AND THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART II…comes the most wacky romantic comedy of the year….with a body count! Jason Priestley is the man who cannot find true love but then finds it…in the morgue! Shannon Elizabeth is a recently dead girl with one thing on her mind…finding Mr. Right…she may be dead but that won’t stop her.

    His name is Harry and he plays with dead things. Her name was Sally and she definitely wants to be played with! Can the living and dead truly come together or will there be bloody carnage intertwined with true love? Find out in…WHEN HARRY KILLS SALLY.”

    If Platinum Dunes remakes this, I will literally punch some cops.

    Sprinkle some dirty on my cupcakes…

    So Platinum Dunes is pretty much just a remake factory, huh? *sigh*

    Why don’t they just acquire the rights to these films and re-release them on DVD with an audio track consisting solely of Nine Inch Nails songs?

    Mark my words: They’re gonna turn it into an Omen rip-off. Anyone who tries to help Rosemary….are KILLED IN THE MOST GRITTY WAVE OF GRITTY GRITINESS! Put some more sand in that camera!

  • Terminal

    Sigh… I… I don’t… I got nothing…

  • Rottenjesus

    “There wasn’t enough Satanic imagery in the original so we’ve added like a whole ton in this movie! When Rosemary’s Baby is born…FLAMES SHOOT OUT OF HER VAGINA! Y’know, because her baby’s the Antichrist right? Nothing screams SATAAAAAAAN like tons and tons of pyro shooting out of a poor women’s private parts! Oh and it’ll be the grittiest fucking movie ever! So gritty that when you watch it your skin will actually be flayed while you’re in the theater! Guaranteed!”

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no…..
