LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Paramount Pictures, fast becoming the home of the remake with such recent pictures as "The Italian Job," "The Manchurian Candidate" and "The Stepford Wives," is resurrecting "The Blob."
Starring Steve McQueen, the 1958 campy cult classic followed a mysterious creature from another planet that resembled a giant blob of jelly and went on a path of destruction as it grew bigger. The movie was remade in 1988 with Chuck Russell at the helm.
The update will be produced for the studio by Jack Harris, who produced the original, and Scott Rudin.
Oh no... the Blob returns... the only creature that ever terrified me as a child may soon be re-released on an unsuspecting public. What are we to do???
Get out those carbondioxide extinguishers or move to the Arctic!
