Videodrome, the 1983 thriller
starring James Woods and directed
by David Cronenberg, will be remade by Universal.
The original was about the head of Civic TV Channel 83, who programmed the Videodrome series, which depicted torture, murder, and attracted tons of viewers, upping the station's reputation and ratings. The remake will be modernized and turned into a large-scale, sci-fi themed action-thriller. Cronenberg is not currently involved with the project.
