The Gill-Man has been lurking in the depths of the black lagoon for decades, and his return to the big screen has been in development hell with Universal since the 1980s. Now, it looks like traction on a remake of Creature From The Black Lagoon is finally taking place.

Dave Kajganich, writer of The Invasion (not the most…critically beloved film ever) and the upcoming It remake, has been hired to write the film. He also worked on the Pet Sematary remake. In fact, Kajganich only writes remakes. The film is being produced by Eric Newman and Marc Abraham of Strike Entertainment (Dawn Of The Dead remake), and Gary Ross and Allison Thomas of Larger Than Life Productions.

The Creature joins Frankenstein and The Mummy as classic Universal monsters to perhaps haunt the big screen once again. Guillermo Del Toro is working on Frankenstein, and Len Wiseman is primed to ruin resurrect The Mummy. »
