No. No no no.

Universal to remake "Videodrome".

They got the scarequotes right. Videodrome is not a large-scale sci-fi action thriller. I hope the videodrome signal infects all of these vandals. Long live the New Flesh.

The original "Videodrome" starred James Woods as the head of Civic TV Channel 83, who makes his station relevant by programming "Videodrome," a series that depicts torture and murder that transfixes viewers. The new picture will modernize the concept, infuse it with the possibilities of nano-technology and blow it up into a large-scale sci-fi action thriller.

Ah this is terrible news! There is no reason to remake this movie, and any attempt is going to suck great wind. Why can't they come up with something original?

"it has something that you don't have, Max. It has a philosophy. And that is what makes it dangerous."
