John Carpenter’s They Live to be remade

The remakes are nearly in the 1990’s now: John Carpenter’s 1988 film They Live is to be remade by Universal and Strike Entertainment.

Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will produce, while Shep Gordon and Carpenter will serve as executive producers.

If you don’t remember the film, it’s memorable for a couple of things: an epic 5 1/2 minute long fight scene, and a line about Bubblegum: “I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass … and I’m all out of bubblegum.” The plot is part sci-fi, part satire with the main character discovering aliens living among us.

Here’s a short taste of the original:
