Universal confirms 'Videodrome' remake
According to Variety, Ehren Kruger will pen the script and co-produce with Daniel Bobker.
The original movie starred James Woods as the boss of Civic TV Channel 83. Woods's character attempts to revive the channel with Videodrome, a series that features torture and murder, and pulls large viewing figures.
The new movie will reportedly "modernise the concept" and turn the film into a "large-scale sci-fi action thriller".
Cronenberg is not currently attached to work on the reboot.
