Remake of Stephen King's Cujo given baffling new title

07.06.2015by: Brennan Klein

In a recent press release, Sunn Classic Pictures revealed that a remake of their classic 1983 Stephen King adaptation CUJO is underway with Lang Elliott (CAGE) attached to direct. The film is set to star DJ Perry, an independent producer and actor and CEO of Collective Development, Inc.

The current title for the reboot is C.U.J.O., which stands for "Canine Unit Joint Operations," and I wish I could tell you this was a prank, but honestly I don't think I'm clever enough to come up with something this ridiculous even if it was.

All we can do right now is speculate as to what that title is supposed to mean. Luckily they've given us a definition to the acronym, so we can assume Cujo is not going to be some sort of futuristic robot, thank all that is good and truthful, but it looks like Cujo will either be the result of, an operative for, or a target of some sort of police or military operation. I'm open to a crazy, campy shootout killer dog flick, but why don't we just leave Cujo alone? He's a good boy. He's had his day.

I'm normally one to give remakes a chance....

...but I have to admit this feels wrong. While Cujo is a more recognisable title, it sounds so far away from the source material surely aligning more with Man's Best Friend (or even The Breed) or just make it an original title would be a better bet given the uncertain nature of remaking recognisable titles? The beauty of Cujo was the simple straight forward story. I'm all for remakes trying something new and not simply repeating but this title feels such a tenuous link to the original it

I'm waiting for more info and will still give it a chance. It could still be decent, just not an actual Cujo movie.

C.U.J.O. is:

i thought it was Cannibalistic Underground Jujitsu Ostriches?
but mainly Cujo has been a part of Assigned Sidekick Services for decades.
he's a service dog.... and a damn good one too.
