Monster Squad remake goes to Platinum Dunes?

5 years agoby: Jake Dee

Regardless of how you feel about a MONSTER SQUAD remake, it looks like the project has found a home. And that home is none other than the Mecca of horror remakes, Platinum Dunes.

While it's been some time since we updated the possibility of a MONSTER SQUAD rehash, it now looks as if the project has been thrust into motion, with P.D. producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form set to oversee the remake alongside original MONSTER SQUAD producer Rob Cohen (so says Deadline New York). Word is the trio is currently in search of writers to flesh out a screenplay. Brad, Andy, Rob...I'm available!

Written by Fred Dekker and Shane Black, the original MONSTER SQUAD revolved around young kids who form a club that is devoted to monsters, but soon get more than they bargained for when Count Dracula adjourns to Earth, accompanied by Frankenstein's Monster, the Wolfman, the Mummy, and the Gillman. The uglies are in search of a powerful amulet that will grant them power to rule the world. Our heroes - the Monster Squad are the only ones daring to stand in their way. Dekker directed the film to boot.

I'm interested to hear what you all have to say about this development. It seems that if there was one film that played so heavily on the nostalgia of being kid, it would be this one. Do you wanna see those invaluable memories sullied by a needless remake? Do you find the idea of remake needless? Or are you stoked about the whole thing in general? Again, I'd really like to know.

Spill some guts underneath!

Michelle Monaghan, star of Shane Black's KISS KISS, BANG BANG!

LEAVE IT ALONE! The original still holds up today, just like the Goonies. "Wolfman's got nards!"

Apparently,as I have ranted endlessly about for the last couple of years,there isn't a single freakin' film that's considered sacred,unavailable for a HOLLYWOOD screw-up!!As the classics fall,one by one,my disillusionment with the HOLLYWOOD film industry, keeps growing at alarming speed !!!!

So now he's attacking our cult favorites? Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elmstreet and now this? Why can't Michael Bay stick to drivel. He's the main guy attacking the horror genre. Fred Dekker can't be happy since he wanted to make a part 2 and can't get a job in Hollywood now.
