Giant Flick Films and writer-director and actor Shahin Sean Solimon (Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage) have announced that they are in development on a remake of Ed Wood’s cult sci-fi Plan 9 from Outer Space. The film will play fast and loose with the “plot” of the original, and features an original story which takes place on a world destroyed by an asteroid.
“I’m actually a fan of the original Ed Wood classic, and was very excited when it was decided to develop this very fun Sci-Fi adventure. Ed was a filmmaker in the 50′s that had very few resources, money, backup, technology, etc. to help him. He did however, have a TON of excitement, passion, and enthusiasm for making movies. I can relate to that, and he should not be forgotten.” said Solimon. “I wrote this picture as an original classic Sci-Fi story and script. I think Sci-Fi fans will love this version. It is a unique post-apocalyptic story, very character driven. It will be a classic noir, action packed, with romance, aliens, and zombies. Yes some nuances from the original. More info will come forth as we move forward.”
Solimon will be launching an IndieGogo campaign to raise funds for the movie, and if you’re interested in more info, you can find it on the campaign page here.
