PROJECT DETAILS
  • Producer Brad Fuller once again spoke on this project in a recent interview, saying: "It might still be [on the table]. That’s a property that we love. I think Shane Black is just a master of what he does, and Fred Dekker… the two of them in a room is super fun. I think at the time, when we were trying to make that at Paramount, we had a really fun script. As times goes by… certain things will seem ridiculous… but there was a time when kids couldn’t be in dangerous situations. So we couldn’t figure out how to have that happen with the kids not really being in peril… so it kind of felt like a feathered fish. Frankly, on The Monster Squad, we couldn’t figure out [what gave that movie a reason to exist]. It was great… the script is hilarious. Mark and Brian Gunn wrote a really, really fun script. But we couldn’t get it to the point where it had to happen. So. It died." (4/30/18)
  • A recent interview with Platinum Dunes producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller revealed that they currently aren't developing the remake anymore. Quoting that "it's dead." It's possible it may get picked up again in the future, but at the moment it's dead. (8/4/14)
  • Apparently the studio is afraid to move forward with the project, as a recent interview with Rob Cohen revealed that they've just been sitting on it. (10/8/12)
