Will horror remakes ever subside!? No, probably not. And hitting the remake slate now appears to an re-imagining of David Cronenberg's suberb 80's horror thriller 'Videodrome'. Ehren Kruger ('Scream 3', 'The Ring Two') is set to write the script and produce with partner Daniel Bobker.

The producers tracked down the rights to Canadian distribution vet Rene Malo, who will be exec producer. Universal distributed the original and had first refusal on a remake, and the studio snapped up the opportunity.

The original 'Videodrome', released in 1983, starred James Woods as Max Renn - the president of Civic TV Channel 83. Whilst on the hunt for new and interesting erotic movies for his station one of his employees comes across a pirate video broadcast showing a 'lifelike' torture, murder, and mutilation show called 'Videodrome'. Max then finds himself drawn into a world of alternate realities, brain-washing and sado-masochism.

The re-imagining will modernize the concept, infuse it with the possibilities of nano-technology and blow it up into a large-scale sci-fi action thriller.

I'm a huge fan of the original for it's style, concept and uneasiness and will be extremely interested to see how this one pans out.
