Aip Rises From the Dead With Roger Corman Remakes

7 May 2013 | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Back in the 1950s, the film industry went through some major changes. The studio system (in which the major studios had directors, actors, and writers under contract and matched them up for films) was dying, and the studios had lost ownership of most theater chains due to anti-trust laws, which meant theaters had more freedom in what they could screen. This gave rise to the independent studios, who would hire no-name directors and actors on a per-project basis, could churn out low-budget flicks with sensational topics that could turn a bigger profit.

American International Pictures (Aip) was one of the biggest independent studios of its time, with over 500 films produced and/or distributed by the company. Aip produced Roger Corman's earliest films. The company specialized in "teeny-bopper" films: juvenile crime, horror, and sci-fi tales. Throughout the years, Aip was bought and merged into a number of companies, with MGM »

Our goal is to engage young audiences and drive the spirit of the times with the same excitement that fueled these titles decades ago”

Samuel Arkoff’s son Lou Arkoff, writer-producer Jeff Katz and Hal Sadoff are teaming to remake 1950s cult pics from the Arkoff-Nicholson library of American Intl. Pictures.

Katz, Arkoff and Sadoff will initially update 10 of the 25 low-budget titles in the library: “The Brain Eaters,” “Girls in Prison,” “She Creature,” “Viking Women & the Sea Serpent,” “Teenage Caveman,” “Runaway Daughters,” “The Undead,” “War of the Colossal Beast,” “‘Cool & the Crazy” and “Day the World Ended.”

Lou Arkoff previously produced Aip remakes on Showtime’s Rebel Highway series in the 1990s, as well as a series of Aip creature titles for HBO Cinemas with Stan Winston.

10 Aip Remakes Planned, Including The Brain Eaters, She-Creature, The Undead

6 May 2013 1:00 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It has been announced that Jeff Katz, Lou Arkoff, and Hal Sadoff plan to remake 10 Aip horror titles from the 1950′s. If you’re a fan of classic horror films from the 50′s – 70′s, American International Pictures needs no real introduction. They were responsible for dozens of horror cult classics, including Roger Corman’s popular Poe adaptations starring Vincent Price.

The titles being remade are said to include: Girls In Prison, Viking Women & The Sea Serpent, The Brain Eaters, She-Creature, Teenage Caveman, Runaway Daughters, The Undead, War of The Colossal Beast, Cool & The Crazy and Day The World Ended.

The announcement lacked details on the cast and crew involved on these projects, but it’s said that all of them will be filmed back-t0-back with the first movie filming this fall. Most likely, these movies will be similar in quality and scope to what Roger Corman has been doing »

Aip Remake Plan In Place: Get Ready For Reboots Of ‘Girls In Prison,’ ‘She Creature’ And ‘Brain Eaters’

6 May 2013 11:08 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Jeff Katz, Lou Arkoff, and Hal Sadoff plan to remake 10 titles in the Arkoff/Nicholson library of American International Pictures-produced 1950’s classics. That means a steady diet of antiheroes, monsters and naughty girls is back on the menu. They will start with these 1950’s drive-in classics: Girls In Prison, Viking Women & The Sea Serpent, The Brain Eaters, She-Creature, Teenage Caveman, Runaway Daughters, The Undead, War of The Colossal Beast, Cool & The Crazy and Day The World Ended. The plan is to shoot them all back to back, beginning this fall. The question will be how these films, distinguished more than anything by their titles, will play in the modern age. Aip was founded in 1954 by Samuel Z. Arkoff and James H. Nicholson, and churned out 500 low-budget, indies for teens that included the Beach Party series with Frankie Avalon and the late Annette Funicello, as well as the early films of director Roger Corman. »
