Hey, we hear John Goodman is free…
Deadline reports tonight that Amblin and James Wan’s Atomic Monster are planning a remake of 1990’s Steven Spielberg-produced, Frank Marshall-directed Arachnophobia, the classic horror-comedy about a species of South American killer spider that takes over a small town in California. Jeff Daniels and John Goodman starred in the original.

The site notes that the search for a writer is on.
Wan is expected to produce but not direct the film.
In the original, “A species of South American killer spider hitches a lift to the U.S. in a coffin and starts to breed and kill.”
