‘Starman’ Remake In The Works

The remake is being helmed by Shawn Levy who is relatively hot off his successes with the 'Night at the Museum' movies.

It looks like Hollywood’s raid on 80’s movies to remake is not yet at an end.

Announced on Friday was a remake of  the 1984 movie ‘Starman’, which starred Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen and was directed by John Carpenter.

The film centred on on alien who took on the human form of a young widows dead husband and asked her to drive him from Wisconsin to Arizona. All the time they are chased by a determined US Government.

At the time the film was a modest success, but really took off when released on VHS and proved successful enough for a television spin-off, which starred Robert Hays.

The remake is being helmed by Shawn Levy who is relatively hot off his successes with the ‘Night at the Museum’ movies.

Arash Amel, best known for writing the Nicole Kidman drama ‘Grace of Monaco’, is writing the script for the project.

Bruce A Evans and Raynold Gideon, who adapted 1980s classic ‘Stand By Me’, wrote the original’s script.

Dan Cohen of Levy’s 21 Laps banner and Robert Mitas are executive producing. Matt Milam and Adam North are overseeing for Columbia.
