Screenwriter Dave Kajganich is a busy man. Not only is he writing remakes for Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, It, and The Stand, but he’s been hired to pen the update to Universal’s Creature from the Black Lagoon.
No word yet on who will be directing Creature, but THR reports that early rumors of Carl Rinsch are untrue.
Creature from the Black Lagoon was just released as part of Universal Classic Monsters eight-disc set on blu-ray. Creature, starring Richard Carlson and Julie Adams, opened in 1954 in 3-D. Watch the “Shocking in the stark realism of Perfected 3 dimension!” trailer below.
