Illustration for article titled The Creature From The Black Lagoon Rises Again, With A Director!

It would seem that all the original monsters are getting remade, what with the vampire surplus and and Wolf Man movie, it's only fair that the Creature should get his turn. And now he will. And it might be good!

Variety announced that Universal Pictures is in early talks with well known commercial director, Carl Erik Rinsch, to bring back the Creature from The Black Lagoon.

Carl Erik Rinsch was originally picked by Ridley Scott to helm the much buzzed about Alien prequel, but now Scott has taken over that director's chair himself. The script is by Gary Ross, who previously stated that is will have, "scientific underpinnings."

Where's gorehound to denounce all remakes as the unforgivable sin and an affront to his personal artistic philosophy?

Personally, I've never seen the original so I have no basis to decide whether a remake will be any good. Some of my favorite films have been remakes including the Maltese Falcon, Michael Mann's Last of the Mohicans, and Dracula (1931).
