The Island of Doctor Moreau has a reboot in the works. Deadline has announced that Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy of Netflix's Hemlock Grove have been hired to adapt the original H.G. Wells novel into a new movie.
Thumbs up on that news, because we love a lot of what we saw in Hemlock Grove. Although they're going to be hard-pressed to match the lunacy of the 1996 Marlon Brando version, in which the legendary actor shot a whole scene with an ice bucket on his head. And that was only like the 10th craziest thing that happened during that film.
Here's to the manimals and cat people, huzzah!
