Bill S. Preston, Esq. to Direct 3D Remake of ‘The Gate’

Now here’s some random news that’s either excellent or completely bogus. Alex Winter has been tapped to director a 3D remake of the 1987 horror film The Gate, according to Production Weekly. You might remember Winter as Bill S. Preston, Esq. from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey), and Marko from The Lost Boys. He replaces Randall William Cook behind the camera. The original, which starred Stephen Dorff, followed three young children who accidentally release a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from a hole in a suburban backyard. What follows is a classic battle between good and evil as the three kids struggle to overcome a nightmarish hell that is literally taking over the Earth.
