Cousins Gunn have been handed scripting responsibilites foe the upcoming remake of 80’s classic ‘Monster Squad’. Mark and Brian have been hired by the production company Platinum Dunes to rework Fred Dekker and Shane Black’s original screenplay from 1987.
Director Rob Cohen will helm and produce the project and should be the ideal choice really as he acted as executive producer on the original.
Here’s the plot to the original ‘The Monster Squad’:
“12-year-old Sean Crenshaw and his best friend Patrick are die hard monster fanatics. Along with their friend Horace (nicknamed Fat Kid),junior high tough guy Rudy, Sean’s kid sister Phoebe, and little Eugene they come together and talk monsters. But when Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Gill Man, and The Mummy come to their small town to get an amulet to control the world, Sean leads his friends into action to protect their town from the forces of evil.”
Casting is yet to begin but I personally wouldn’t mind seeing Tom Noonan back as Frankenstein. What d’ya think?
