To those who still doubted, he has to do is watch a little bit what is happening in that time : Hollywood has no more ideas and decided not to take any risk since it is in the process of redoing virtually everything that we liked when I was a kid.
After that, it is not necessarily a scoop, or a novelty. This has always been the case, in fact, it works in waves. Hollywood has always remade to safe values, the success of the past, it’s nothing deeply shocking in there. This is probably due to the change of generation at the head of the studios, with the new bosses who look back at the good fanboys capitalists to see what they could do it again. But we must still recognize that in this moment it is a bit of a festival with all the projects of remakes, making reboots a thing and suites late. And we hope, frankly, that it’ll soon calm down.
So yes, it is not the Enterprise
It is necessary, therefore, to expect that everything that made us vibrate in the 80’s to be delivered to the taste of the day. And it is even better if the heroes are kids. It’s called the effect Stranger Things no doubt. And now we learn today that the cult Explorers Joe Dante will also go through the box remake.
Released in 1985 right after the success huge of Gremlins, Explorers isone of the many declaration of love for Joe Dante’s the movie that has shaped the science fiction of the 50’s. There followed a kid who was passionate about SF who built his own spaceship in the garden and discover that it actually worked. Taking two friends with him, he was in the area and met extra-terrestrials.
The three young adventurers
The site Deadline informs us, therefore, that the film will soon be the subject of a remake with the difference thatwe will return in the form of a tv series produced by Paramount. Here’s where it gets interesting is that the director of True Detective, Maniac and the next James Bond, Cary Fukunaga is in charge of giving life, with the help of David Lowery, director and screenwriter notably of A Ghost Story.
For the moment, no additional information has been given by the studio, nothing about a date of filming for the pilot, and even less about the successors of River Phoenix and Ethan Hawke. But, in the configuration of hollywood present, it is probably what could get much better at Explorers.
To infinity and beyond
