29 May 2008 @ 13:05Plan 9 from Outer Space set for remake

Original Plan 9 from Outer Space posterThe cult classic Plan 9 from Outer Space by Ed Wood, Jr. is set to be remade by John Johnson and production company Darkstone Entertainment with a release date of 9/9/09.

Simply titled “Plan 9″, the remake will be a serious-minded retelling of the original story, paying homage to the spirit of Wood’s film without resorting to camp or parody. The film will focus on the horror and science fiction aspects of the original, but will also be largely character-driven. Johnson’s goal for “Plan 9″ is to make a film that honors not only the original source material, but also Ed Wood’s intentions when he made “Plan 9 From Outer Space”. Wood’s plan was to make a very scary sci-fi/horror film, and Johnson wishes to do exactly that – create a film that Wood would have enjoyed, or perhaps even made himself, if not bound by the technological limitations placed on filmmakers 50 years ago.
