Do you like werewolves? Well, even if you only like strippers, you'll probably love Strippers vs. Werewolves. Producer Jonathan Sothcott is working on bringing this epic showdown to the big screen. With a script from UK horror writer Pat Higgins, the film hopes to serve as a comedic homage to 80's horror movies, sort of a "Shaun of the Dead meets Bitchslap in the style of The Howling." "As I was reading it I was thinking 'this is like a great reference to The Monster Squad,'" said Sothcott. "And when I asked Pat, it turned out it was!" (Dread Central)

‘Monster Squad’ Remake Nabs Writers http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/monster-squad-remake-nabs-writers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/monster-squad-remake-nabs-writers/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I remember it looking a lot cooler when I was eight.The much anticipated (by me) remake of The Monster Squad has come one step closer to completion with the addition of two new screenwriters. Mark and Brian Gunn (cousins, not husbands) have signed on to pen the reboot of Fred Dekker's 1987 classic.Assuming they don't totally ruin the film by going the Twilight route, it will be nice to see a vampire that wants to kill teenagers, not fall in love with them. Unless, of course, they base the Dracula character on my creepy Uncle Mike, who liked to do both. (Hollywood Reporter via Dead Central)
