Producers Roy Lee (The Ring) of Vertigo Entertainment and Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious) of Room 101 are developing a remake of the 1978 Irwin Allen disaster B-movie The Swarm, reports TheWrap. The original starred Michael Caine as an entomologist who learns that killer bees from South America have been coming together to form huge swarms. He sets out to stop the military from attacking and worsening the imbalance in nature, ultimately teaming up with them to prevent the deadly swarm from reaching Houston. Award-winning commercials director Ash Bolland is attached to direct and a writer is expected to be hired within the next month. The biggest challenge with movies of this sort is finding a way to make the killer animals have personality (so the audience has an emotional response to them) – which is why having a “hero” bee is highly recommended.
