"Con Air" Director Simon West to Remake "The Blob" Horror Film

Posted: January 24th, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Con Air" Director Simon West to Remake "The Blob" Horror FilmSubmit Comment
"The Blob" horror film was originally released in 1958. Exactly thirty years later, in 1988, we got a remake. And now comes word that "Con Air" director Simon West is attached to remake "The Blob" again.

The story focuses on a deadly blob from another planet which consumes everyone in its path. "With modern CGI we can now fully realize the potential of 'The Blob,'" said West. "The world I create will be totally believable, immersive and emotionally satisfying. It's a thrill to introduce an enduring icon to a wider audience and a whole new era of fans."

The plan is to begin shooting this summer and start getting the word out at the Berlin film market next month.

Con Air was a brilliant action movie but let's be honest it was partly directed by Jerry Bruckheimer who brought his Michael bay explosions and slow motions style to the production.

as for 'the blob' - never cared and never will about horror movies.

Well it's about f*cking time, although I think the 80s remake was, is superior to the Steve McQueer original.

" "With modern CGI we can now fully realize the potential of 'The Blob,'"





Because it takes a supercomputer farm and a battalion of talented artists to realize the potential of a gigantic wad of chewing gum absorbing everything in its path.

And after EX2, you can just go f*ck yourself.

Let me guess....Melissa McCarthy will do for the Blob what Andy Serkis did for Gollum....

The '88 Blob was one helluva creepy movie. The death scenes still stick in my head. Plus, 18 year old Shawnee Smith.
