James Wan and Steven Spielberg to co-produce Arachnophobia reboot
The original directed by Frank Marshall was released on 1990
Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and James Wan’s Atomic Monster will be joining hands to produce the reboot of the horror-comedy Arachnophobia. The original was released in 1990 and starred Jeff Daniels, John Goodman, Harley Jane Kozak, and Julian Sands. It marked the directorial debut of Frank Marshall, who co-founded Amblin Entertainment. The film, which was based on a Venezuelan spider's attack on the civilians of a small American town, went on to become commercially successful during the time of its release.
Though James Wan has a reputation for making horror films like Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring, it has been made clear that the producer-director will not be directing this reboot. An official announcement about the principal cast and crew is expected soon from the makers.
