UNIVERSAL READIES VIDEODROME FOR A RIDE ON THE REMAKE TRAIN

 

HEY BASTARDS.

 

Fresh from the “ah for fuck’s sake” file, Deadline is reporting that Universal is knee deep in plans for  a remake of David Cronenberg’s 1983 cult hit VIDEODROME. Ehren Kruger (TRANSFORMERS: DARK SIDE OF THE MOON) scripted the remake and is producing with partner Daniel Bobker (THE BROTHERS GRIMM). The project is being directed by Adam Berg won the Film Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival for his Carousel commercial for Philips. Ahhh Universal, you were once so proud. Here’s hoping they do something relevant with the story and don’t turn it into a shit-pile. Here’s also hoping that Mila Kunis and Jessica Alba invite me to that three-way we’ve talked about in my head so often. Something tells me the latter is going to happen first.

 

We most likely won’t be talking about this film further unless it gets interesting.

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,

 
G
