KOSAR WRITES CRAZIES REMAKE
Paramount has hired horror specialist Scott Kosar to write The Crazies, a remake of George Romero's horror-thriller set up at Paramount-based Penn Station.
Variety reports the film will update the storyline of the 1972 original, in which inhabitants of a small Pennsylvania town are beset by death and insanity after a plane crash lets loose a secret biological weapon into the water supply.
Kosar's credits include New Line's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, Paramount Classics' The Machinist, MGM/Dimension's remake of The Amityville Horror, and Salem, in development at Sony-based Laurence Mark.
