They Live Sequel

They Live Sequel

Like anything else in Hollywood another classic film seems to be the latest rumor. A possible reboot or sequel to 1988’s They Live which starred Wrestling LegendRoddy Piper. When John Carpenter was addressed with the question he stated he would not say anything about the project. Some think that this is a tease towards something being in development.

Luckily the reimagined feature film by Matt Reeves as been scrapped. Hopefully this is not a reboot and we have to deal with preparing for the best but expecting the worst. Like the 2011’s The Thing remake which starred some great talent but was pretty lackluster.

Based on the 1963 short story “Eight O’Clock in the Morning” by Ray Nelson. Hopefully we can first get someone to fill the legendary wrestlers shoes. Also starring the very talented Keith David (HBO’s Spawn). If this is a reboot we can all hope that the designers try to stay similarly close to the original make up design as possible. Using practical effects instead of CGI or at least minimally used CGI for certain shots.

We can all wait in anticipation to see if They Live actually rises to live again in theaters.
