Is nothing sacred? You bet your ass it’s not! The remake of a Japanese franchise is getting a reboot.
“Reboot” is getting to be my least favorite word, but at least the bloody thing is in competent hands. It will be produced by Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert, who were behind the first (American) one. (They’re also responsible for a little movie you may have heard of called ‘The Evil Dead.’)
It will be written by Jeff Buhler (‘The Midnight Meat Train’). And it shall be directed by Nicolas Pesce (‘The Eyes of My Mother’).
No word on cast yet, as this thing is just barely getting off the ground. It’s a promising start, but as far as I’m concerned they can take their time.
