Arachnophobia remake is in the works

The Conjuring director James Wan is in the early stages of producing a remake of 1990's Arachnophobia which starred John Goodman

Wan, who is becoming an increasingly busy filmmaker between his Aquaman film and his other horror exploits, is unlikely to direct.

Yes, Deadline reports that James Wan will be producing a remake of the classic 1990 spider flick via his company Atomic Monster and Amblin.

Amblin Entertainment is weaving a spooky web, putting a remake of Arachnophobia into the works. Beyond that though, little is known about the new film, as it is in early stages of development with no directors, actors or writers signed on yet. Wan is the director of Aquaman, now in post-production, and he is a highly sought-after artist.

The original Arachnophobia (that's a term used to describe the fear of spiders and other multi-legged creatures), starring John Goodman and Jeff Daniels, tells of a species of South American killer spiders that crosses the U.S. border and a group of people have to work together to stop the spiders by killing the queen.

U.S., Mexico, & Canada to Host 2026 World Cup
The United States, Mexico and Canada will host soccer's biggest event in 2026. Mexico also played host in 1970 and 1986 but Canada has never done so before.

The original movie centered around a species of South American killer spider that crosses the USA border in a coffin. It also marked the directorial debut of Frank Marshall, who went on to become a prolific producer, including producing 2015's Jurassic World and 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

The film's original plotline read; After a nature photographer (Mark L. Taylor) dies on assignment in Venezuela, a poisonous spider hitches a ride in his coffin to his hometown in rural California, where arachnophobe Dr. Ross Jennings (Jeff Daniels) has just moved in with his wife, Molly (Harley Jane Kozak), and young son. Before that, his latest producing effort, The Conjuring spinoff The Nun, will hit theaters on September 7.
