This time Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment are teaming up with James Wan's Atomic Monster to bring back the 1990 horror-comedy film called Arachnophobia. Wan will not direct. Jeff Daniels and John Goodman starred in the original, in which a few fearless souls try to track down the queen before the hybrid breed can take hold. It followed a deadly species of South American spider that ends up in the USA and breeds with a common household spider, creating a breed of highly-venomous arachnids.
"Arachnophobia", named after the fear of spiders and other arachnids such as scorpions, made use of Avondale spiders from New Zealand, which were picked due to their large size and harmless nature.
It grossed $53 million at the box office, and though it cost a healthy $30 million to make, it grossed a further $30 million through video rental. Original's director Marshall will be exec producer.
Amblin just recently produced Ready Player One and next week's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Atomic Monster's first title was 2014's "Annabelle", followed by "The Conjuring 2", "Lights Out", and "Annabelle: Creation". While Atomic Monster is now in post production for their September release of The Nun.
