James Wan Producing Remake of Arachnophobia

James Wan Producing Arachnophobia Remake

In a world filled with reboots and remakes, comes another reboot.

The news that the film is in early stages of a remake come today via Deadline.

Wan is now finishing up Aquaman for Warner Bros and DC, but has extensive horror experience, from directing the first Saw movie (producing the others) through to Insidious and The Conjuring.

Wan is looking to team up with Amblin Entertainment, which made that first movie, to create this new film with the team still looking to finalise a writer for the project. And it would appear that Wan himself will not be directing either. Arachnophobia (which means "fear of spiders") revolved around a newly-discovered type of Venezuelan spider that is transported to a small town in California and begins breeding, giving rise to a new species of giant killer spiders. Starring Jeff Daniels and John Goodman, the spider breeds and becomes a massive killer as a few courageous souls try to track down the queen before the hybrid breed can take hold.

Fans of horror cinema are familiar with necessarily this classic: Arachnophobia is a cult film released in 1990 and directed by Frank Marshall. That said, what we do know so far- the producing team- is exciting.

Are you excited about this remake? Before that, his latest producing effort, The Conjuring spinoff The Nun, will hit theaters on September 7. Whatever your thoughts are, be sure to share them with us in the comments section down below!
