Remake Fever Claims Cronenberg's Mutant Babies

Illustration for article titled Remake Fever Claims Cronenbergs Mutant Babies

Cronenberg's terrifying mutant-baby film The Brood is the next classic to be revamped and updated. Brack Eisner, who directed The Crazies remake, will be remaking The Brood next.


According to The LA Times Eisner is set to direct the latest remake. And it sounds, thank goodness, as if the film will be sticking to the original creep-fest's script, about a mother who telepathically communicates with her mutant babies, causing them to kill.

Here's the original synopsis:

A man tries to uncover an unconventional psychologist's therapy techniques on his institutionalized wife, while a series of brutal attacks committed by a brood of mutant children coincides with the husband's investigation


The film is slated for early 2010, which means we won't be short of any remakes this year. What with The Crazies, The Creature from The Black Lagoon, Wolf Man and others

I was confused for a moment, since I misread the title as announcing a Muppet Babies remake.

Come to think of it, what would Cronenberg do with the Muppet Babies if he had something to do with the show?
