Yes, Ed Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space" is being Remade! Hurray? See the Teaser/Trailer! 

"Plan 9 from Outer Space" from writer-director Ed Wood Jr. is considered one of the worst films ever made in cinema history!

Released in 1959, the film's plot is about aliens re-animating the dead in order to take over mankind! Now, this cherished cult classic is getting a remake makeover just in time for its 50th anniversary from director John Johnson and Darkstone Entertainment.

The remake is just going to be called "Plan 9" and this is going to be a serious take on the film. Johnson and company will pay homage to the spirit of Wood's film without resorting to camp or parody.

According to the "Plan 9's" official website:

The film will focus on the horror and science fiction aspects of the original, but will also be largely character-driven. Johnson's goal for "Plan 9" is to make a film that honors not only the original source material, but also Ed Wood's intentions when he made "Plan 9 From Outer Space". Wood's plan was to make a very scary sci-fi/horror film, and Johnson wishes to do exactly that - create a film that Wood would have enjoyed, or perhaps even made himself, if not bound by the technological limitations placed on filmmakers 50 years ago.

Apparently, "Plan 9" received the blessing and participation of Conrad Brooks, the sole surviving member of the original film's cast and crew.

"Even if Eddie was a little off in his filmmaking skills, you cannot deny his passion," Johnson says. "I feel a strong camaraderie for the man and his work, and hope that I can make a film that would be as loved by audiences today as the original was for his generation. Only this time with its true intention."

Take a look at the teaser/trailer of "Plan 9" and see the serious mood that Johnson is going for.
