From Dark Horizons:
Rob Zombie is re-making the Blob, he'll write, direct and produce a $30 million remake of 1958 horror classic for Genre Co. says Variety.
In the original Steve McQueen classic, an object from space crashes into a field, containing a red blob-like substance that absorbs the humans it contacts and grows exponentially. Zombie's new version however will take a different tack, the director refusing to disclose details but confirming that "my intention is not to have a big red blobby thing -- that's the first thing I want to change." So why call it the Blob?..did someone hit Zombie with a stupid auteur stick?
Zombie, Jack H. Harris, Richard Saperstein, Judith Parker Harris, Andy Gould and Brian Witten will produce.
There was a sequel/remake in the 70's directed by Larry Hagman and a remake in the 80's with that decade's gory sfx.
