Carpenter’s ‘The Fog’ Being Remade!

I’m sure I’m going to get castrated for this comment- but I’d love to see a remake of John Carpenters classic flick from 1980, The Fog. But here’s the kicker, seems Carpenter doesn’t mind either, and he’s personally made some comments regarding the decision. Read on for the story…
According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Revolution Studios is mounting a remake of the 1980 horror-thriller “The Fog,” with Debra Hill, David Foster and John Carpenter producing. But Carpenter, who co-wrote the original with Hill and also directed it, will not be returning to the director’s chair. “I have done it once, and I don’t want to do it again,” Carpenter said. “I did my ‘Fog,’ and now it’s someone else’s time. It’s very flattering. It’s terrific that they want to make it. We have been thinking of doing ‘The Fog’ over for some time, as maybe a sequel. But now is the season of the remake.” Cooper Layne, whose credits include “The Core” and “The Emperor’s Club,” is penning the remake.
