The Tracking Board is also reporting that Universal Pictures has turned to their in-house low-budget maven Jason Blum to steer their planned remake of the 1977 film The Sentinel back on track.
The original, which was based on the book of the same name from author Jeffrey Konvitz, centers on a young woman who moves into a NYC apartment, only to discover that it may be the gateway to hell.
The original film, which was directed by Michael Winner was set to be remade by Universal back in 2003, but the studio struggled to find a way to get the project out of development hell.
Blum (Insidious, Paranormal Activity, The Purge) will produce alongside Kevin Misher and his Misher Films.
This project is currently out to writer/directors.
