Samuel L. Jackson to Star in Simon West’s Remake of THE BLOB

The Blob Remake

Samuel L. Jackson has reportedly joined the Simon West‘s upcoming remake of 1958 horror/sci-fi classic The Blob.

The Marvel movie regular will play a biochemistry professor attempting to shut the wobbly predator down. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the remade Blob will now come from deep within the Earth, as opposed to the original’s outer space origins.

Richard Saperstein and Brian Witten will produce along with original film’s producer Jack Harris.

Umm…it’s only news if Sam Jackson isn’t in something. The popular actor will also play a leading role in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight as well as in Tim Burton‘s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children novel adaptation and David YatesTarzan feature. Sam’s agent must have a “say yes to everything” pass. Lol. I think it’s safe to say now that horror fans are getting rickrolled with this one.
