Breck Eisner is currently hard at work on his remake of George Romero’s The Crazies. Seems like a tough gig – the original film really is something very special and it will be pretty hard to compete with it. Eisner’s obviously happy to tackle remakes, however because both of his potential next projects have seen the silver screen before.
Firstly, there’s a new Creature From the Black Lagoon. One draft of that script was done by Gary Ross, which is pretty encouraging, and I’m definitely intrigued – particularly if it gets shot in 3D, as per the original. And then, and probably more likely to roll first I’m guessing, is a new Flash Gordon film. Talking to Arrow in the Head, Eisner has laid down his ideas on what the films need.
