Swamp Thing remake...in 3-D!
The following comes from Moviehole. A remake of the 1982 Wes Craven film Swamp Thing is going to be remake in 3-D. But, the question is, is it a remake of his film, or Swampy's original DC origin story?
Joel Silver is looking at bringing back that titanic gruesome salivating boondocks-bred ogre...
…. No, not Andy Lazar.
The producer of such monster-centric pics as "Predator", "The House on Haunted Hill" and "Orphan" tells Collider he’s toying with the idea of resurrecting “Swamp Thing”, “which is a movie we’ve had for a long time”, Silver says. ‘’We think that would be great to do in 3D. There are a couple of projects I’m thinking about (for the format) but not everything.”
For the uninitiated, “Swamp Thing” is a character that’s origins lie in the DC Comics Universe. He first appeared in House of Secrets #92 (July 1971), and was created by Len Wein and Berni Wrightson. The character is a humanoid mass of vegetable matter who fights to protect his swamp home, the environment in general, and humanity from various supernatural or terrorist threats.
Wes Craven bought the comic property to the big screen in 1982. It starred Louis Jourdan, Adrienne Barbeau and Ray Wise as the scientist who was transformed into a monster (Swamp Thing) by a laboratory accident.
In addition to “Swamp Thing 3-D”, the always-busy Silver is producing the long-gestating “Greyskull” (based on TV toon “Masters of the Universe”), a remake of the science-fiction classic “Logan’s Run”, the troubled “Wonder Woman” film, and “Sgt. Rock”, set to be directed by Guy Ritchie.
