In a world filled with reboots and remakes, comes another reboot. This time Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment are teaming up with James Wan’s Atomic Monster to bring back the 1990 horror-comedy film called Arachnophobia.
The news that the film is in early stages of a remake come today via Deadline. As of now the film does not have a director, actor or even writers. We do know that Wan, who is finishing up Aquaman, will not direct but will serve as a producer. The original film was directed by Frank Marshall, but he will be on board as an executive producer.
The original Arachnophobia film that was released in the summer of 1990 starred Jeff Daniels, John Goodman, Harley Jane Kozak and Julian Sands. The film was about a newly discovered Venezuelan spider that made it back to the United States via a casket and caused havoc in a small town after it began producing a new species of deadly drone spiders that began killing the town residents.
Amblin just recently produced Ready Player One and next week’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. While Atomic Monster is currently in post production for their September release of The Nun.
