Illustration for article titled Creature From The Black Lagoon Will Be Based On Pure Science

Gary Ross has been talking about remaking the Creature From The Black Lagoon, which his father co-wrote, since 2001. But now Ross says he hopes to be making the film next year — and it's going to be science-focused and scary, not campy.


The original Creature was based on a lungfish that Ross' dad found, and the new version will have "scientific underpinnings." And Ross, writer/director of Pleasantville and Seabiscuit, has already co-written a new script. No word on a director, and the project hasn't officially been greenlit. [Collider]
