Three Times a Charm for ‘The Blob’ ?

That sick disgusting lump of poo is coming back for a third time (or is it more?) thanks to Paramount Pictures, according to the Hollywood Reporter. As if the first two versions (1958, 1988) weren’t good enough, this one’s gonna be big! Read on for the full story…
The Hollywood Reporter writes:

With several remakes under his belt, producer Scott Rudin is turning his attention to the 1958 B-movie “The Blob” for Paramount Pictures. The Paramount-based producer whose recent credits include “The Manchurian Candidate” and “The Stepford Wives” remakes will produce the feature along with Jack Harris, who produced the original film. Judith Harris will serve as an associate producer. Starring Steve McQueen, the campy cult classic followed a mysterious creature from another planet that resembled a giant blob of jelly and went on a path of destruction as it grew bigger. The horror/sci-fi movie was remade in 1988 with Chuck Russell at the helm. Paramount has fast become the home of the redo, with other remakes in the works including “The Last Holiday” with Queen Latifah, “A New Leaf” with Barry Sonnenfeld and “The Naked Jungle” with Jonathan Hensleigh.
