Spiders are back on the march in the Arachnophobia movie, which Christopher Landon confirms is set to be his next film (if all goes to plan).

Filmmaker Christopher Landon has recently been chatting about his plans to complete his Happy Death Day trilogy, and is now in the midst of promoting his latest film, We Have A Ghost. And in the midst of conversations about that has come talk of another project he’s attached to.

That’d be the planned remake of 1990’s family spider horror, Arachnophobia. First revealed in the middle of last year, the new movie is set to be written and directed by Landon, and nattering to Discussing Film, he confirmed that “I’m hoping it should be my next film. We’re getting super close”.

He added that “the script’s done”, and the film is at the stage where “it’s just really about getting it together”. He confirmed too that he’s recently met a spider wrangler in preparation for the shoot of the movie.

Frank Marshall, who directed the original, is producing this new take on Arachnophobia. No word yet on a release date, though.
