Remake producer extraordinaire Brad Fuller (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street) recently spoke with the folks at Bloody Disgusting about several Platinum Dunes projects in the works. He mostly talks about the untitled Michael Bay film “Ouija”. Fuller also drops some hints about some fan favorites that will surely break some hearts.
“‘Ouija’ isn’t really a horror movie per se, it’s definitely more of a big action-adventure movie along the lines of…I gotta be careful what I compare it to. But you know, it’s like a big action-adventure movie. And that script…I’ve read a couple pages of it, it seems good. I think we’re getting the full script in the next month. And that’s a very exciting project for it, cause it’s a much bigger movie, and it gives us an opportunity to try something we haven’t done before…There are definitely horror elements, because it’s about Ouija and what happens from an Ouija board, but it’s a much bigger film. I would call it an action-adventure with horror elements.“
Did you catch that? He “read a couple pages of it, it seems good”. What does that mean? The rest was poop and he couldn’t go on? Hmmm…
Fuller also had this to say: “We’re all systems go on ‘Monster Squad’. We’re meeting with writers every day on that, trying to pick a writer to write that…’The Birds’ we’re still trying to figure out.“
Please don’t figure out The Birds and please leave well enough alone when it comes to The Monster Squad. I don’t need you wiping your ass with another one of my childhood favorites.
Do you guys think that a remake of The Birds and The Monster Squad are in order? Or am I just being a hateful jerk?
