You guys remember way back in January? When I told you all how the SyFy Channel were planning on remaking the popular BBC series "Being Human?" Well I don't blame you if you don't remember, that shite was ages ago! So what's the deal with this thing?

If you're wondering as well you'll be happy to hear today we've got somewhat of an update from the guys over at iF Magazine. You see they recently chatted with SyFy president David Howe about the project and the man was kind enough to spill some details!

"You have to carry it out. I think the biggest challenge is how much do you take from it thats there. Where are you getting repetitive and derivative and how do you not retread? We talked a lot about the U.K. OFFICE and the American OFFICE. So were about making it our own and yet holding on to whats great about the original."

Howe goes on to talk about the writers behind the project (Jeremy Carver and Anna Fricke), where things are at with the project and where the series might take place. East Coast anybody? To check out the whole interview you can head right over HERE.

In the original supernatural series Lenora Crichlow (below), Russell Tovey and Aidan Turner star as three apparent twenty-something characters sharing a house in Bristol, trying to live a normal social life, despite being a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire. "Being Human" should be coming to SyFy within the upcoming season so be sure to keep it here for updates as we hear them!

Hopefully

I haven't seem much of the original, but what I've seen I like, I just hope that they don't try and ninja up the vampires. Why is it that when ever someone in film becomes a vampire they automatically turn in to ninjas. It's like giving any old schmo a light saber and suddenly they become a Jedi.. Even in fiction this is a bit of a stretch. vampires shouldn't get bit and then go flying around kicking peoples heads off. They also shouldn't turn out to be all homo-erotic... I'm sure there

I'm sure there are some gay vampires, probably at least 10 percent of vampires could be expected to demonstrate a homosexual leaning, but seriously, a lot of my friends are gay and they demonstrate very little desire to drink blood, and even less of a desire to go flying around kicking peoples heads off. So I say no gay vampire ninjas (unless there is a good back story. I hope they don't frig this up. Normally that's the BBCs job ie. Neverwhere. The tenuous threads suspending my disbelief are being taxed to the limit with all the ninja vampires.
