James Wan Remaking Classic 90's Spider Flick ARACHNOPHOBIA

James Wan Remaking Classic 90's Spider Flick ARACHNOPHOBIA

However, almost 30 years on, the film is the latest candidate for a big screen remake.

Amblin and James Wan's Atomic Monster are the early stages of a remake of Arachnophobia, the 1990 Frank Marshall-directed horror-comedy film about a species of South American killer spider that crosses the US border in a coffin.

The original film was directed by Frank Marshall (who will also executive produce the remake) and starred Jeff Daniels and John Goodman. We'd expect the vast majority of the arachnids this time to be brought to life using CGI, because the spider union is a very tough organisation these days, not to mention PETA.

No writer or director is thus far attached to the project, that Wan is likely to produce and oversee.

Harking back to the b-movies of the 50s and 60s, it found Jeff Daniels' small town GP discovering the disgusting secret behind a series of local deaths, all of which turn out to be from a deadly species of spider brought back to the USA from the Amazon. Amblin produced "Ready Player One" and "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom".
