Disney Rebooting “Something Wicked This Way Comes”
|Disney rebooting “Something Wicked This Way Comes”|
Disney is preparing to reboot “Something Wicked This Way Comes“, their 1983 horror fantasy film. Based on the novel by Ray Bradbury, it follows two boys who learn of a mysterious, traveling carnival, Mr. Dark’s Pandemonium Carnival, that is coming to their town. The movie was Disney’s attempt at getting away from its kiddie fare, but ultimately was a flop at the box office. It has since become a cult classic.
The reboot will be much closer to the the original novel, which was darker and more filled out. Seth Grahame-Smith, the best selling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter) as well as a co-writer on Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows movie, will be making his directorial debut.
