'Beverly Hills Cop,' 'Naked Gun,' and 'Escape From New York': What's next?
Who: Screenwriter Ehren Kruger, director Adam Berg
But why? Beats me. "Videodrome" is early Cronenberg through and through, a wholly original and brilliantly weird creation that still feels fresh and relevant today. Any attempt to cash in on the title (which doesn't itself hold a particularly broad appeal) feels ill-advised, particularly without Cronenberg's involvement. Luckily not much has been heard about this since Berg's hiring was announced over two years ago.
