The writer-director behind Happy Death Day, Freaky, and three Paranormal Activity movies, Christopher Landon, has just found his next film. He will be writing and directing Amblin’s remake of the 1990 horror-comedy Arachnophobia.


Landon’s name isn’t the only big one involved. James Wan is producing along with his Atomic Monster partner Michael Clear. Amblin’s Jeb Brody, the studio’s executive vice president Lauren Abrams and Vice President Mia Maniscalco, and Judson Scott are executive producing THR reports.


The original movie, directed by Frank Marshall, centers on a town terrorized by deadly spiders and stars Jeff Daniels, John Goodman, and Julian Sands.


We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, here’s a look back at the original trailer for the beloved film.
