I understand the role remakes play in Hollywood and for the most part I’m fine with it. But when I can’t get through a single work day without reporting on another remake, the grind gets a old. Today it’s a corker: Bloody-Disgusting reports that Alex Winter (yeah, that Bill and Ted Alex Winter) has found financing for his proposed 3D remake of The Gate, which origially starred a very young and round-faced Stephen Dorff as a kid who finds a gate to a prison containing ancient demons. Naturally, they want to take over the world, just like the army of remakes we’ve been facing down for the last few years. Read More »
A few years ago, rumblings started in regards to a remake of the 1987 floor-bursting creature feature The Gate. According to Production Weekly’s reliable Twitter, it’s now moving forward with director/un-Ted, Alex Winter, at the helm and will satiate today’s masses with devilish imps in glorious 3D. With no real evidence whatsoever, Devin at CHUD suggests that original star, Stephen Dorff, is free to reprise his role. Hey, he worked with Christian Bale on Public Enemies: he can obviously still deal with a hell hole…bad jk.
The original PG-13 film is a nostalgia boner for many thanks to the suburban setting, a large helping of stop-motion effects, and a plot that spoofs the then-controversy over heavy metal. It also exploited the golden days when kids were fascinated by mysterious holes in the ground that, sadly, they often dug themselves. See also: The Pit. Last year, Winter was hired to pen Howard Stern’s endless wet dream/remake of Rock ‘n’ Roll High School and probably failed to see Lost Boys: The Tribe because it was an abortion.
Discuss: C’mon, this is one remake you can’t really get mad at, amirite?
