You have GOT to be kidding me

Someone wants to remake Plan 9 From Outer Space. Plan 9 is an Ed Wood film that’s often referred to as the worst movie ever made. This guy wants to remake it. And has this to say about the remake:

Simply titled “Plan 9”, the remake will be a serious-minded retelling of the original story, paying homage to the spirit of Wood’s film without resorting to camp or parody. The film will focus on the horror and science fiction aspects of the original, but will also be largely character-driven. Johnson’s goal for “Plan 9” is to make a film that honors not only the original source material, but also Ed Wood’s intentions when he made “Plan 9 From Outer Space”. Wood’s plan was to make a very scary sci-fi/horror film, and Johnson wishes to do exactly that – create a film that Wood would have enjoyed, or perhaps even made himself, if not bound by the technological limitations placed on filmmakers 50 years ago.

Yeeeaaaaah…

But, it looks like you can watch the original film, in its entirety, at Google Video, for free, as it has entered the public domain. So that’s pretty cool.
