Paramount Pictures is remaking the 1987 film The Monster Squad.
Rob Cohen, who produced the original, hopes to direct the remake. Cohen
will produce with Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and
Andrew Form, and they’re meeting with writers. (Via Deadline)
FUCK THIS SHIT. Do you know what Rob Cohen has directed? The Fast and the Furious, Stealth, and the third Mummy film. Yes, he was someone’s second choice after Stephen Sommers. And we all know what evil Michael Bay can and has wrought on beloved nerd properties. I don’t want to advocate murder, but… no, wait, I do. I do want to advocate murder. Bay and Cohen deserve to have a fat kid shove a stick of dynamite down their pants, and then kick them in the nards. (Via FilmDrunk)
