"Videodrome" Remake is Moving Forward

Posted: August 22nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Videodrome" Remake is Moving ForwardSubmit Comment
After making "Cosmopolis" together, Robert Pattinson and director David Cronenberg talked about re-teaming for a remake of Cronenberg's "Videodrome." Apparently that won't happen, but the "Videodrome" remake is moving forward.

Commercials helmer Adam Berg, who is behind the "Carousel" short and was set to direct Ryan Reynolds in "Deadpool," in now in talks with Universal Pictures to make his feature directing debut on the "Videodrome" remake that has been written by Ehren Kruger (Transformers: Dark of the Moon). Pattinson is not attached to the project.

James Woods starred in the original film as the head of Civic TV Channel 83. He makes his station relevant by programming Videodrome, a series that depicts torture and murder that transfixes viewers. The remake will modernize the concept and become a large-scale sci-fi action thriller.

For anyone interested in seeing how Adam Berg created "Carousel":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teoSDTJDjF4&fmt=18

This 2009 short accompanied the launch of Philips first cinema proportioned tv. "Carousel" is an appropriate title which offers a clue about the punch line. As the Officer in the start and end was actually one of the clowns who leaped from the window (wearing a stolen uniform). Clever commercial on the technical side which features long continuous tracking shot, stunt men, wire work and post production effects (explosions, smoking guns, glass shattering effects etc.). Adam Berg could be the next David Fincher who also started off his careers making commercials. As a fresh director, he could do quite well with a Videodrome remake.

That Carousel short film is fantastic.

Thanks for the link Mr. Blonde.

@Bullit - you're welcome. The continuous tracking shot was impressive and I can't believe they actually accomplished this level of complexity of principal shooting using only a handful of days. Goes to show the planning, staging and execution beforehand must have been considerable. We've seen "bullet time" tracking shot made famous by the first Matrix movie with Neo dodging bullets on his back. And Swordfish had a great opening sequence of a detonated bomb filled with ball bearing projectiles that cut through everything in its path and ended by focusing on one particular ball bearing. "Carousel" ups the ante with a heist gone wrong and the clowns having to storm a hospital. As this time we track the shot through a building where mayhem is occuring on multiple fronts in a closed loop sequence. The only thing missing was Batman.
