Paramount Calls on Monster Squad Remake
Paramount Pictures is ready to remake the 1987 family spook-fest THE MONSTER SQUAD, according to Deadline.com. Rob Cohen is circling as director, but will certainly produce with Platinum Dunes' Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. The producers are now looking for writers.
The original film, which Cohen produced, follows a band of classic monster-loving kids who discover that Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Gill Man and The Mummy have come to town and they must stop the baddies from taking over the world.
Fred Dekker and Shane Black (LETHAL WEAPON) penned the original screenplay.
