Thing & Andromeda Strain remake

Post by ghostface » Thu Sep 09, 2004 2:55 pm

Unapologetically stolen from

"Frank Darabont (Writer/director of The Shawshank Redemption) and director Ridley Scott (along with brother Tony) just signed big sci-fi deals with the Sci-Fi Channel, with the Scotts exec-producing a 4-hour remake of THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN and Darabont taking a shot at directing a 4-hour version of THE THING.

The Sci-Fi Channel seems to be getting more and more popular among A-listers around Hollywood, with folks like Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Brian Singer and others signing on the science-fiction line that is dotted as well. A man by the name of David Johnson is working on the script of THE THING, which would be based on the short story "Who Goes There" by John W. Campbell (and made famous by John Carpenter's ultimate version in 1982 starring Kurt Russell and his beard). Darabont said that he believed the script would be done by "Christmas", and that shooting would take place next year, with a possible air-time sometime in late 2005 or early 2006. Should be interesting, although we don't get the Sci-Fi Channel up here in Canada, so that kinda sucks for us. What sucks even worse is that we DO get the Space Channel. Bugh."

I hope this doesn't kill the rumored theatrical re-remake of The Thing.

And yes, this has something to do with zombies. Somehow.
The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all its own...
