Unnecessary remake continues to move forward.

Deadline has learned that Swedish commercials helmer Adam Berg is in talks to make his feature directorial debut with the long-gesting remake of David Cronenberg’s cult classic ‘Videodrome.’

Released in 1983, the original sci-fi horror starred James Woods as a TV executive who makes his station relevant by programming ‘Videodrome,’ a series that depicts torture and murder that transfixes viewers.

The plan for the Ehren Kruger (‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon,’ ‘The Brothers Grimm,’ ‘Scream 3’) scripted remake is to “modernize the concept, infusing it with the possibilities of nano-technology and blow it up into a large-scale sci-fi action thriller.”
