The Earth to stand still again

Hollywood seems to be getting tired of remaking Asian horror now and instead it's turning its attention towards the sci-fi classics of the '50s. We've already had recent reworkings of The Time Machine and War of the Worlds, and now it's being reported that a remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still is in the works.

Not many details are floating around right now, other than that it's being produced by Fox and is scheduled for release on 9 May 2008, so it's still obviously in the concept stages. Let's hope they get some writers and a director who know what they're doing, eh?
