Patrons flocked to theaters for killer piranhas, so who’s to say they wouldn’t do the same for killer bees? Producers Roy Lee and Steven Schneider sure as hell aren’t going to say such a thing.

Award-winning commercial director Ash Bolland is attached to direct and a writer (formality) is expected to be hired soon. The original The Swarm was hated by both moviegoers and star Michael Caine, so there’s no where to go but up with the remake.
