Cohen to Produce Monster Squad Remake
I guess it’s not really a helluva lot of information, but it could be enough to ruin your morning if you’re not careful. Rob Cohen caught up with the B-D boys recently to chat about his latest film, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, and dropped some potentially disturbing news about the 1987 classic The Monster Squad.
One word: Remake. Paramount has apparently acquired the remake rights for Fred Dekker’s beloved masterpiece of monster mayhem. As of right now Cohen is on board to produce only, with supposedly no intentions of directing. I hope he’s telling the truth about that; of course whomever they do find to direct could be 1000 times worse than Cohen...
Right now it’s all in the early idea stages, it seems, so hopefully it’ll be a long time before we hear it spoken of again. And when we do, the letters “C-G-I” had better not ever come up in conversation.
