STARMAN To Be Remade By Shawn Levy For Columbia

80's sci-fi revivals are back in the headlines with word from THR that director John Carpenter's 1984 film, Starman, is up for a remake over at Columbia Pictures. Stand By Me scribes Bruce A. Evans and Raynold Gideon wrote the original film which centered on a widow coerced into helping a fugitive alien look-a-like of her deceased husband, with a three-day cross-country drive to the Barringer Crater in order to save his life.

That film starred actress Karen Allen with actor Jeff Bridges who earned an Academy Award nomination for the film at the time while the film later spawned a short-lived TV series on ABC a few years later. Real Steel and Night At The Museum helmer Shawn Levy will direct the film from a script by Grace Of Monaco and upcoming WarGames remake scribe Arash Amel, with Robert Mitas and 21 Laps's own Dan Cohen executive producing, and Columbia's Matt Milam and Adam North overseeing.
