Universal will remake the 1983 David Cronenberg cult classic Videodrome, with Ehren Kruger attached to write, according to Variety.
The original film starred James Woods as head of Civic TV Channel 83, who makes his station relevant by programming Videodrome, an intoxicating “reality” series that depicts torture and murder.
According to the report, the remake will modernize the concept, add nano-technology and churn the whole thing into a big-budget sci-fi action thriller.
Below is a scene from the original cult classic.
