The big screen master of horror James Wan (The Conjuring universe, Saw franchise, The Tommyknockers) is producing an Arachnophobia remake, based on the 1990 horror comedy film directed by Frank Marshall, Deadline has confirmed.

Wan is now finishing up Aquaman for Warner Bros and DC, but has extensive horror experience, from directing the first Saw movie (producing the others) through to Insidious and The Conjuring. Marshall is also returning to the project as an Executive Producer. Sure, the film was a modest box office success, and it's well remembered today for the roles played by Jeff Daniels and especially John Goodman as the Coen-esque, bumbling exterminator Delbert McClintock, but this is no pop-culture classic or box office blockbuster we're talking about.

The film, which was unveiled on Monday, is at the early stages with no director, actors, or writers attached. It is not thought that Wan will direct.

For those who have not seen this film in which there was Jeff Daniels, John Goodman, Harley Jane Kozak, Julian Sands and Stuart Pankin, the story begins during an expedition in the Amazon where a photographer is killed by a bite of spider that manages to seep into his coffin before his body was repatriated to California.

Are you excited about this remake?

"Arachnophobia", named after the fear of spiders and other arachnids such as scorpions, made use of Avondale spiders from New Zealand, which were picked due to their large size and harmless nature. Together, the characters must team up to find the original "queen" and destroy her spider-producing nest before the venomous spiders wipe out their entire town.
