Invasion of the Body Snatchers (v.5) - News, Rumors, Etc.

Because 5th time's a charm?

Warner Bros. Planning 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' Remake

'The Conjuring 2' screenwriter David Leslie Johnson will pen the script.

The body snatchers are back, with Warner Bros. developing a remake of the sci-fi classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Horror screenwriter David Leslie Johnson will pen the script for the feature, which will be produced by John Davis, who is known for I, Robot and Chronicle.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers has had many Hollywood iterations. The 1954 novel was first adapted for the screen in 1956 and focuses on a small town as it is invaded by aliens that mature to look like exact copies of the people in the town, but who are devoid of all emotion. A 1978 version starred Donald Sutherland and Jeff Goldblum and was set in San Francisco.

Johnson has a long working relationship with Warners, having penned the sequel to New Line's successful horror feature The Conjuring. He also wrote the upcoming Conjuring 3 and is working on New Line/Warner Bros.' Nightmare on Elm Street remake.

Johnson is repped by Paradigm and Behr Abramson.

Aside from the bland 2007 film I've enjoyed ever iteration thus far. I'm game to at least give it a shot.

Yeah, they've all been watchable to great so far, but not sure why we need another.
