John Carpenter's 'They Live' on the Remake Block   

December 4, 2008 Latest eighties horror film set for a remake is John Carpenter's "The Live."

The Hollywood Reporter reports today:

John Carpenter's cult 1988 film is getting the remake treatment from Universal and studio-based Strike Entertainment, which are in negotiations to acquire the film rights with rights holder Les Mougins.

Strike's Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will produce, while Shep Gordon of Les Mougins and Carpenter will serve as executive producers.

It goes without saying that Hollywood should focus more on original material. Carpenter's "They Live" was and is a great movie, but a remake?
