While chatting with iFMagazine about his entry in the Masters of Horror series (Homecoming), movie geek hero guy Joe Dante dropped word that a remake of his The Howling is almost certainly getting underway. The veteran filmmaker also expresses some confusion as to why people might want to remake his Piranha -- but as far as I know ... that remake is already in production!

Frankly the idea of a Howling remake is pretty darn silly, especially when you think back and remember how much of the movie had to do with those silly "new age group communes" that were all the rage in the late '70s. But hey, why let logic get in the way of the exploitation of a groovy title like "THE HOWLING"?
