I got this news from the Fangoria website. Here it is: August 29: Carpenter to remake CURSE OF THE DEMON? In an interview for Knight-Ridder Newspapers, John Carpenter reveals that he’s taking a break from filmmaking for now (“I’ve been working on a nice long vacation”), but does have a comeback project in mind: a remake of the Jacques Tourneau classic CURSE OF THE DEMON. “It’s a great story—a very weird story,” he says of “Casting the Runes,” the Montague R. James tale on which CURSE was based; the original film was recently released on a DVD containing both its U.S. and European (under the title NIGHT OF THE DEMON) cuts. I am usually against remakes of great films, but Carpenter is my favorite director of all time, and I think he could pull this off. Not to mention that he also made the greatest remake/reimagining of all time, THE THING, so I'm betting he can do this right. I'm definitely looking forward to this!
