With the 1974 film It’s Alive! hitting DVD today, it only seems appropriate that talk of the remake would surface on the web. During a recent interview with the originals screenwriter/filmmaker Larry Cohen, which was conducted by ’2001 Maniacs’ director Tim Sullivan, we found out some details about the remake, which can be found inside…Larry Cohen tells UHM:
“I’m going to both write and direct the remake. I want to make it my way, and this is the best way to do it so it will be kept under control. It’ll be fun. I haven’t directed a picture in about five years, actually, so it will be nice to get back into it. Certainly we’ll use CGI, but I expect to use it in a more creative way. I’ll keep the creature in the shadows so you won’t get a good look at the thing thru most of the picture. And when we pay it off, of course, it will be excellent. But it could hardly be better than some of the shots of it in the original. They were few and far between, but what you did see made it look like it was real.”
