If everybody else is making remakes and they want to pay me money to make a remake of an old movie of mine, why not? It's a good idea&; Seriously That's part of the answer, but my ex-partner Debra Hill, who just recently died, has been trying to get this off the ground. We hooked up with David here, who finally did get it off the ground, and it was kind of nice for her to see this being made.
In the case of The Fog, it's a pretty fireproof idea in terms of what happens. It's an old ghost story. The idea in this case is to freshen it up. And as a cultural mindset these days, it says if anything's over 15 years old, it's old fashion and old school; The thing to do is to take it out and prop it up and put some, a fresh coat of paint on it, and see how it goes.
