According to Variety:
Sounds like a bad idea. Who goes to malls these days?
Yeah! They should call it "Chopping Multiplexes"
Everyone involved with these remakes always vows to make them darker, edgier, etc. For the hell of it just once I'd like to see some producer vow that his remake will be brighter, more colorful and feature song and dance numbers.
A musical remake of Chopping Mall shot on 3-strip Technicolor would literally be the greatest thing ever.
what next, phantom of the mall - eric's revenge!!!!! This remake virus has got to stop!!!
Sounds like a winner
That's great.If it's a hit it can have three sequels within three years and then an edgy reboot in five !
Hopefull this means will get a SE DVD/Blu-ray of the original.
Cliff Mac of Shout Factory hinted that Lionsgate's rights to this film (and presumably others) from the Vestron library were about to expire so maybe there is some hope that this will be reissued. The transfer that they used for the DVD was atrocious, apparently they used a VHS master complete with the tracking issues inherent of the format!
Not to keen on the "supernatural spin".
But I'm interested in seeing what they can do with this remake. And how would they make the robots more updated.
Smaller? Walking? Multiple types?
instead of a remake. i would love to see a excellent transfer re release blu-ray with cool extras and great picture..
Yeah me too, not only that anybody remember the days of sequels? I missed those days.
Chomping Mall II Attack Of The Multiplex.... This Time It's Personal!!!!!
Piranha 3-D was a remake???????? How so???? It was its own movie, except the title from what I saw.
I like this idea. The original was fun, but definitely could be improved on. I'm also glad they're ditching the robots. People barely bought that a mall would have killer security robots in the 80s, so why would they believe it now?
Also, plenty of people still visit the mall. They may not come in droves anymore, but they're not as dead as many believe. Just go to one this time of year. The backrooms and hallways of the mall are also creepy as fuck sometimes (I worked on a short film where we got access to the back to shoot some footage. Definite a fairly untapped area to explore.), so I could see this working if they do it right. I'll definitely see what happens with this.
Whatta ya mean? Abercombie & Finch needs protection & don't get me started on Dolce & Gabana. We need robots... Hell West Edmonton Mall in Alberta Canada has submarines. lol
Well, screw this idea! Don't shit on one of my favorites! I would be happy with a re-release that reinstates the cut TV version scenes though.
Where did it say they were ditching the robots?
Also what about store mannequins coming to life? That would be a great idea.
Nickelodeon made this happen in the 80's.
