Jeff Katz, Lou Arkoff, and Hal Sadoff are going to remake a bunch of American International Pictures’ (Aip) flicks from the 50s. The plan is to remake 10 movies, with the first group being 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 Aip spirit was all about innovation and giving new young talent a place to create,” said Arkoff. “We are now using that independent spirit and our library of classic titles to create something brand-new for the modern media model, with a coordinated social effort to accelerate interest in these properties. Our goal is to engage young audiences and drive the spirit of the times with the same excitement that fueled these titles decades ago”
Here’s Katz on why he wanted to embark on this »

They might not be quite as strong a part of cinematic tradition over here than in the car-happy Us, but drive-in movie chains and the B-movies they spawned are still a glorious sight to behold. Now a group of producers are planning to remake a batch of classic titles from the 1950s, raiding the library of American International Pictures to bring The Brain Eaters, Teenage Caveman, She-Creature and more back to the world.The team includes Lou Arkoff, son of Samuel Z. Arkoff, who founded Aip in 1954 with James H. Nicholson to churn out such low-budget efforts as The Undead and Viking Women And The Sea Serpent. They intend to remake 10 of the bigger Aip titles, building on their efforts to redo the movies for the Us cable network Showtime in the 1990s. This time, however, their aim is the big screen.“The Aip spirit was all about innovation and »
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.”
All the redos will be set in the same Aip universe, with the possibility of the same characters appearing in several films. All 10 will be shot back-to-back, with production set to start this fall.

Viking Women & The Sea Serpent, The Brain Eaters, She-Creature, Teenage Caveman, The Undead, War of the Colossal Beast, and The Day the World Ended. These are a few of my favorite things, and they're now getting remade and more!
According to Deadline, 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. Usually the mere idea of remakes sends shivers of woe down our spines, but given the talent involved and the love that I know they have for these projects, we couldn't be happier.
Getting the redux treatment are the following 1950's drive-in classics: Girls in Prison, Viking Women & The Sea Serpent, The Brain Eaters, She-Creature, Teenage Caveman, Runaway Daughters, The Undead, Cool & The Crazy, The Day the World Ended, and my personal favorite, The War of the Colossal Beast. Please.... please... Please... keep the same make-up design for that one! »

Signifying our society’s maturing from the sarcastic negativity that defined the ’90s, into the cheerily positive attitude toward brand exploitation that is the more modern form of cynicism, remakes are now in the works for 10 titles from American International Pictures—the B-movie studio perhaps best known as one of the top suppliers of terrible films to Mystery Science Theater 3000. Among the first MST3K-mocked Aip movies being readied for updates are The She-Creature, Teenage Caveman, Viking Women And The Sea Serpent, The Undead, and War Of The Colossal Beast, all of which were churned out on the »
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 »

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. »

Movies that put the "story" in prehistory!
For the first time since 2008's 10,000 B.C., a caveman movie was the number one movie at the box office this weekend, with DreamWorks Animation's The Croods raking in $44 million domestically and another $62 million in international ticket sales. The Croods takes place during the "Croodaceous Era," a time when modern animals had yet to fully evolve and a neanderthal girl like Eep (voiced by Emma Stone) could fall for a homo sapien boy like Guy (Ryan Reynolds).
Our prehistoric past has long been a source of entertainment on the big screen, inspiring movies of all different genres, from goofy comedies like Encino Man to gritty dramas like Quest for Fire. However they are depicted, cavemen are infinitely fascinating because, quite simply, they are us, but without cars, microwaves, cell phones or personal hygiene.
