Paramount Pictures reportedly plans to remake 1987 horror-comedy The Monster Squad.

According to Deadline, director Rob Cohen has been tapped to helm the update, produced by Platinum Dunes heads Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.

The original picture centred on a group of misfit children battling classic movie monsters Dracula, The Wolfman, The Gill Man and Frankenstein.

Cohen, who directed 2008's The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, executive produced the original Monster Squad.

Platinum Dunes is apparently meeting with writers to hash out a script for the project.
