"Drop Dead Fred" Remake! Really? 


As if one "Drop Dead Fred" is not enough, brace yourself folks, a remake is coming very soon!

Universal just announced that Russell Brand ("Forgetting Sarah Marshall") will star as the imaginary friend in the studio's planned remake.

In the 1991 flick, Phoebe Cates starred as a failed woman who's forced to live back home, only to get reunited with her childhood imaginary friend (Rik Mayall). But...trouble ensues...the end...

This time, Universal is promising to set the film's tone in the vein of "Beetlejuice" and explore the concept of imaginary friends! Oh, okay...

Dennis McNicholas, fresh from co-writing the studio's "Land of the Lost" is set to pen the remake.

Speaking of imaginary friends, here's a scene from the original where Cates meets all the other folks suffering from "Imaginary Friends" syndrome.
