Anyone remember that 2006 Korean monster movie The Host? Some think it was the inspiration for J.J Abrams Cloverfield. Well it only got a limited release in the US, which apparently makes it eligible to be remade. Universal are the studio behind it, and Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski will produce. Fredrik Bond will direct, making it his first movie, and Mark Poirier (Smart People) will write the script.
The story follows a town terrorized by a giant mutant squidlike creature hatched by toxins that flow into a nearby river from a military base. When the creature grabs a little girl, her dysfunctional family must band together to rescue her.
