To the true Horror fans/geeks, Platinum Dunes is the Devil. They have been on a remake frenzy for a while and every Horror movie from the 70s and 80s are in danger of their retouch. I'm sure they are nice people, but they have to know they are pissing off a huge amount of folks.
However, Hera smiled on us by telling producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form not to remake Rosemary's Baby! They had a plan to remake the demonic classic but something...happened.
Is there a horror film that just cannot be done again and why do it again? I see that you’re doing “Rosemary’s Baby” and that seems like one.
Andrew: We are not doing “Rosemary’s Baby”.
Brad: No, no. I mean… “Rosemary’s Baby” was announced and it’s like a little bit like we’re taking about with Freddy. We went down that road and we even talked to the best writers in town and it feels like it might not be do-able. We couldn’t’ come up with something where it felt like it was relevant and we could add something to it other than what it was so we’re now not going to be doing that film.
Good, good indeed
