Source – Digital Spy: ‘The Fog’ remake planned: “Classic horror film The Fog is to receive a modern-day remake.
The original movie told the tale of a crew of drowned sailors who returned to a town 100 years after their death, bringing a mysterious fog with them.
The movie is being rewritten by David Foster, while original director John Carpenter will be co-producing, but won’t return to the director’s chair.
Carpenter told The Hollywood Reporter, ‘I have done it once, and I don’t want to do it again. I did my Fog and now it’s someone else’s time.
‘It’s very flattering. It’s terrific that they want to make it. We have been thinking of doing The Fog over for some time, as maybe a sequel. But now is the season of the remake.’ “
