Say It Ain't So

A remake/prequel of THE THING. I've been hearing about this for years, but it seems like it's really going to happen. The thought of CGI in this movie makes me want to weep.


I'll keep my fingers crossed, but right now this is feeling really sacrilegious.

More info.

It's wrong...wrong on so many levels. Not only do I suspect blatant use of CGI, I fear a cast of 'fresh talent' to draw in the younger crowd - people like Shia Labeouf, or whomever is the equivalent of Freddie Prince Jr these days.

I tremble at the thought.

Someone slash Will Smith's tires before they start casting this.

i think everybody is running out of ideas for horror films. doing alot of remakes(some of them are not too bad)

what was worse than the remake of The Fog?

They shouldn't touch it.

If they do a prequel, then that might be ok....but If they remake the remake....I will be a sad scottsquatch. The 80's remake is one of my favorite movies of all time.

I agree the cast worries me more then a little cgi. Kurt Russell needs to come knock some sense into these lame movie exec's that keep green lighting all these remakes.
