James Wan is producing a remake of the 1990's spider film, "Arachnophobia". Wan, who has directed a few horror movies himself, won't be at the helm but is hiring a writer really soon.
The original movie about a species of South American killer spider that crosses the U.S. border in a coffin, turned out $53,208,180 at the box office and another 30M in rentals. The movie made Spielberg the fourth richest entertainer of the year, from being second. Advertisers didnt know whether to market it as a comedy or a thriller.
Wan produced the upcoming, "The Nun", hitting theaters Sept. 7 and a trailer is coming on Wednesday.
