Videodrome remake might be directed by “new flesh”

Commericals director and features newbie Adam Berg is in talks with Universal Pictures to helm the long-gestating reboot of David Cronenberg‘s classic Videodrome, Deadline reports.

Berg would be making his big-screen debut with the flick, which has been penned by co-producer Ehren Kruger.

The 1983 Videodrome starred James Woods‘ as a TV programmer who becomes obsessed with a foreign show that depicts horrifying acts of sexual violence. This, being a David Cronenberg film, is merely the tip of the iceberg.

Kruger’s modern script reportedly expands the tale into “a large-scale sci-fi action thriller.”

That doesn’t sound like the Videodrome we know and love, but we’ll reserve our judgement until we see the final product.

Discuss: Is Videodrome ripe for the remaking?

  1. I think videodrome is right for remaking as the original concept is even more suited to the times than it was back in 83. It will be interesting if the new makers turn it into an internet orientated idea as apposed to a tv orientated idea. I just hope they don’t f*** up what was good about the original
