WB Remaking ‘Creepshow’? Why?

Look, I’m all for remakes, but some of them are just plain ridiculous! Last night it was reported that Warner Bros. would be remaking the classic 1982 horror film Creepshow, which had three separate stories in one movie. Remaking a movie of this format is just plain stupid when you can design your own original film. Read on for the skinny and their ‘Go’ theorem…
Creepshow, the 1982 horror anthology movie written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, is getting the remake treatment, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Warner Bros. Pictures is developing the remake, which will be produced by Roy Lee and Doug Davison of Vertigo Entertainment along with Taka Ichise of OZ LA and Tony Ludwig. James Dudelson, the original rights holder, also is attached to produce. Although in the original anthology the stories — which were written in the old 1950s EC Comics style — were unconnected, the plan is to structure the new movie a la “Go,” where individual stories will have interconnected characters and situations. Uh, so why don’t they just make their own new trilogy of horror films and call it something else. This is easily one of the most useles remakes announced yet.
