Paramount Pictures Plans a Remake of Joe Dante’s Explorers


A remake of director Joe Dante’s 1985 science fiction adventure, Explorers, is on the way. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Paramount Pictures’ Paramount Insurge is developing a new big screen version with Better Living Through Chemistry writer/directors Geoff Moore and Dave Posamentier attached to script.

The original Explorers followed a trio of children (including Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix in their big screen debuts) who build a spaceship in their back yard.

Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, whose writing credits include Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, are attached to produce.
