September 23rd, 2013 by Marc Comments

Another one to file under the remake heading of ‘Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!’ the Troll Hunter remake is coming. But it may not be all bad.

Neil Marshall, director of The Descent, is re-writing and directing the £25m English language remake of the Norwegian hit.

The movie will be made at IMG Global and Marshall is rewriting the first script by Marc Haimes. No word on cast yet.

The movie follows a team sent in to solve a series of bear attacks but who soon find that bears are not the problem…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
