Bloody-disgusting.com spoke with director Breck Eisner (on the set of The Crazies remake), and he updated them on the status of the Creature from the Black Lagoon remake that he hopes to start after The Crazies...
When asked if the Gary Ross scripted Creature will be his next film, Eisner said, "I don't know. We turned in another script. I think they are probably going to see how Wolf Man does and then we'll probably know from there."
"I haven't really been on top of it for a month," he added. "I've been in Georgia making [The Crazies]. But I'm hoping. We've been on it for two years. We're all very excited. We came so close to going. We were in prep before the Writer's Strike."
Although he didn't reveal much about the creatures look, Eisner did reveal the methods of it's creation, "The creature design is done. McQuarrie did the designs. It's a combo [of CG and man-in-suit]. For close-up, [it will be] suit work, for moving shots, wide and underwater stuff its probably going to be CG. We're still R & D'ing the CG stuff of the underwater, but it's definitely both. Some of the underwater movement of the character can't be done by a guy in the suit."
He also admitted that the project could join the current 3D craze, "We weren't [considering 3-D] before, but the landscape in the last year has changed. You expect it to be. People have forgotten the original is, but they'll remember it once the next one comes out."
I guess we'll see what surfaces...
