Another remake is on the way, and this time it’s for a film that has had several remakes already.
Deadline is reporting Warner Bros. is set to remake Invasion of the Body Snatchers and has hired The Conjuring 2 writer David Leslie Johnson to pen the script. He will be joined by John Davis, producer of the Predator films, including the forthcoming The Predator, who will produce the new version.
The original film was based on the 1954 sci-fi novel The Body Snatchers written by Jack Finney. It followed a doctor in a small town who becomes convinced that the residents are being replaced by a race of aliens and attempts to uncover their invasion. Invasion of the Body Snatchers was released in 1956 and was directed by Don Siegel with Kevin McCarthy starring; it was remade for the first time in 1978 from Philip Kaufman and starred Donald Sutherland. Subsequent remakes came in 1993 and 2007, titled as The Body Snatchers and The Invasion, but both films fared poorly at the box office and were not received well among critics.
