‘Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!’ Remake Squashed



Horror fan ‘Avery’ contacted Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! director John De Bello to find out what the status is on the long-gestured reboot that was announced almost exactly 3 years ago, with Kent Nichols of “Ask A Ninja” attached to direct.

No updates that I can share at the moment,” De Bello explains also telling Avery that “Ask A Ninja'” is no longer involved. “I guess if they can remake ‘The Horror of Party Beach,’ then ‘Killer Tomatoes’ should be a lock, eh? Alas, even vicious veggies fall victim to the vagaries of Hollywood deal making. Anything is possible with ‘Killer Tomatoes’… while a remake remains a tantalizing possibility, to paraphrase William Goldman: ‘Ya never know’.

In the original ’78 film, a group of scientists band together to save the world from mutated tomatoes that kill.
