Willard Remake Is Coming!

Just found out that filming recently wrapped on a remake of one of my favorite films of the 1970's: Willard. For those of you who are not acquainted with the movie, it is the story of a downtrodden fellow who exacts his revenge upon those who have humiliated him with, what else, his pet rats! Bruce Davison played the lead in the original, classic, 1971 movie, which spawned a sequel, Ben. In an amazing bit of casting, this time around, Willard will be portrayed by none other than Crispin Glover! Wow. I'm crossing my fingers! The new Willard is said to be heading for an August 2003 debut at theatres (around the same time as Freddy Vs. Jason).
