Monster Squad Remake Coming Soon?

Whoah, whoah, whoah... Are you trying to p**s me off Hollywood?

Remakes are coming way too thick and fast at the moment and although I've been content with most of the offerings we've heard about recently I have to say right here and now that they're personally stepping on my toes with this one!

One of my all time favourite movies back when I was 9 years old was Monster Squad, a movie about a bunch of monster movie lovers who come across the diary of Van Helsing and end up battling the likes of Dracula, Frankenstein's monster, a Mummy, a Wolf-man and a Gill-man in their home town. It's become a cult classic over the years for good reason. Goonies and Lost Boys have their avid followers, so does this one.

This is the news:

The Platinum Dunes banner, now partnered with Paramount, and producers Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form might be following up their most recent reboots of Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street with another remake being tossed into the mix, as Deadline reports they are developing a remake of the 1987 horror comedy Monster Squad with Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen set to direct and produce (he also produced the original back in the day). They're currently meeting with writers to get things going on this remake that will surely upset some people.

Yeah, me. If it ain't broke, don't try and fix it!
