‘Monster Squad’ Remake Not Going to Happen

Platinum Dunes’ Brad Fuller and Andrew Form said in an interview with Collider that the ‘Monster Squad’ remake is officially no longer happening. Whether you’re a fan of the original 1987 film or not, I think we can all breathe a sigh of relief now.

There will be no “Michael Bay’s Monster Squad.”

No reason was given for the cancellation of the project, but perhaps there were some licensing issues with the Universal Monsters — especially now that Universal is trying to make a unified Universal Monster Cinematic Universe.

PersonallyI’m glad, as I’m a little sick of regurgitated properties – even the ones I liked (TMNT). Guardians of the Galaxy may have been an adaptation, but at least it was something original on film – and Hollywood should take note at its success.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
