Another 'Body Snatchers' is being filmed

March 24, 1992|By Los Angeles Times

if you can't get enough of those terrifying giant pods in the 1956 "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and the 1978 remake, don't worry. Version No. 3, titled just "Body Snatchers," is filming in Selma, Ala.

Co-screenwriter Stuart Gordon ("Re-Animator") says that it's more of a remake than a sequel.

"We realized that it's been 14 years since the last 'Body Snatchers' movie and that there's a whole new audience that really knows nothing about the first two films," says Mr. Gordon. "This one doesn't depend on knowing about the first two movies. In a sense, it's a second remake."

Terry Kinney and Meg Tilly star.
