Halle Berry Will Star in Simon West's Remake of 'The Blob'

We just learned from viewing the Swengroup website that Oscar winner Halle Berry (Gothika, Dark Tide) is going to be starring in Simon West’s remake of the 1958 horror classic The Blob. Last we heard, Samuel L. Jackson was attached to star in the film, so I guess we’ll find out more information soon about his involvement.

Synopsis:
A terrifying reimagining of an enduring horror icon, based on the 1958 sci-fi classic that starred Steve McQueen and has thrilled genre fans since. When a band of miners uncover something hidden deep beneath the earth, they unwittingly unleash a hideous creature beyond imagination. Now the townsfolk must fight back… before it destroys everything.

As West mentioned back in 2015, “With modern CGI we can now fully realize the potential of The Blob. The world I create will be totally believable, immersive and emotionally satisfying. It’s a thrill to introduce an enduring icon to a wider audience and a whole new era of fans.

We will continue to provide updates on the situation regarding Jackson, along with anything new we hear about the project.
