Universal Pictures is digging up and remaking the classic 1956 black and white horror film The Mole People, Deadline is reporting.


Chris Winterbauer (Wyrm) is writing the script for the remake based on his pitch to Universal, with the film being produced by “The Walking Dead’s” Robert Kirkman and Dave Alpert under the Skybound banner.


In the original, directed by Virgil W. Vogel, archaeologists discover a five-millennia-old Samarian civilization living beneath a glacier atop a mountain.


In the remake, “a woman travels to a town veiled in a conspiracy to rescue her grandchildren from their father. To do this, she must fight through hell in the underground tunnels where the Mole People reside.”


Here’s a look back at the original trailer. You can snag your copy of The Mole People (1956) from Scream Factory.
