Rob Zombie remakes „The Blob“

Rob Zombie wird nächstes Jahr ein Remake meines Lieblings-Wackelpudding-Films „The Blob“ drehen, dessen 80er-Remake meiner Meinung nach einer der unterschätztesten Filme des Jahrzehnts war. Ich mag Rob Zombies Filme ja sehr und fand auch sein Halloween-Remake gelungen, allerdings kriege ich ja bei Sätzen wie „My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing“ schonmal schlechte Laune. Ein Blob ohne einen Blob? Bitte nicht.

Zombie will write, direct and produce a remake of the 1958 horror classic that launched the career of Steve McQueen. Production will begin next spring.

Zombie’s deal to make “The Blob” his next film comes as Dimension opens “Halloween II,” the Zombie-directed sequel to his 2007 hit “Halloween.”

In the original “Blob,” an object from space crashes into a field, containing a red blob-like substance that absorbs the humans it contacts and grows exponentially. While Zombie was a fan of the original, he’s formulated a decidedly different take that he would not reveal.

“My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing — that’s the first thing I want to change,” Zombie said. “That gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now.”

    Der Original-Blob ist nett, das erste Remake aus den 80ern ist ziemlich toll… aber was soll der Satz von Zombie er wolle kein blobby thing? Its the fucking Blob! Er soll bloß nicht mit irgendeiner shape-shifter-Kacke oder sowas anfangen…

    muss man ihm jetzt aber auch recht geben: es würde nicht funktionieren.

  4. Irreversibel

    Wäre es aber dann nicht sinnvoll eine Neuverfilmung einfach zu lassen?

  5. jAnsen

    nein. eventuell hat man dem original ja noch etwas hinzuzufügen.

    Na ja, wenn man das Projekt ernst nimmt, kann es natürlich nicht funktionieren! Schon der Achtziger-Blob war ja wohl eher eine Groteske und augenzwinkernd inszeniert. Damals übrigens Hammer-Effekte – auch die Splatter-Sachen (die Waschbeckenabfluss-Saug-Szene zählt zu meinen All-Time-Favourites).

    Warten wir ab… Zombie bastelt da schon was GUTES! ^_~

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.

    Sir Christopher Lee, more fantastic than all of us. ALL OF US.

    Performed in a metal opera as Charlemagne.

    Schooled director of original and only worthwhile Wicker Man about ancient Druidic practices.

    And blessed with the most authoritarian voice ever. And I think he’s like 1,90m tall

    The only person in Peter Jackson’s LOTR cast to have met and conversed with J.R.R Tolkien 

    Corrected Sir Peter on the sound a person makes when stabbed in the back due to actual experience with that action

    He didn’t just perform as Charlemagne; he’s directly related to the great Frankish king.

    His WWII service was in the British Special Forces.

    He was an SOE agent, right?

    That he was
