According to ScreenDaily, Alex Winter (Bill from "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure") is set to direct a 3-D remake of "The Gate" horror film for H20 Motion Pictures.
The original 1987 film, which starred Stephen Dorff, followed three young children who accidentally release a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from a hole in a suburban backyard. What follows is a classic battle between good and evil as the three kids struggle to overcome a nightmarish hell that is literally taking over the Earth.
The plan is to begin filming at the MMC Studios in Cologne in the late summer. No word on casting yet. Stay tuned.
Original is a horror fan classic, but do we really need a remake? The 3D aspect of it might pull in a select crowd, but I think My Bloody Valentine 3D did it in for 3D horror flicks! C'mon Hollywood, give us some original sh*t! Quit with this lame plot bullsh*t! Give me end of the world, no holds barred, Revelations type sh*t! A movie where men, women, and even children are fair game for the slaughtering! A true rated "R" or "NC-17" is what the true horror fans want! Not just gimmics, loud crashes and cheap scares! I pray that Sam Raimi goes back down the horror path again soon!
